Session Track: 
Theming
Level: 
Intermediate
Presenter: 

We just upgraded our web infrastructure at RIT, and with that came new tools, specifically the ability to run Node.js on the server. With the newly available technology our team has developed a base theme using Gulp, Sass, Bourbon/Neat/Bitters, and smaller "modular" Javascript to pull from. In this talk I will introduce Bourbon/Neat/Bitters, take you through some of our old themes -- specifically how each developer had their own theme -- and walk through how we structure our new themes and what I feel the are the benefits to doing it this way.
