Coding: The Grammar, and the Theory
There were three components to the conference: general talks, topics specific to developers, and a training track for people starting out. Since I’m taking a course in the WordPress software this fall and am an aspiring developer, I went to a couple of the more advanced developer talks. The first was Debugging CSS by Stephanie Hobson of Mozilla. As I’m also taking a course in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets, which affect the presentation of a website) it was good to have a refresher. Programming languages are a bit like spoken languages, except that it is absolutely crucial not to make any grammar mistakes, something that is quite challenging.
