Talk: Rapid Frontend Development with Zurb Foundation

Here are the slides for my talk at the Memphis Web Workers User Group on October 10, 2014.


Zurb Foundation is the self-proclaimed “advanced responsive front-end framework in the world.” I’ve worked with Foundation on a number of projects over the past couple of years and it’s an awesome tool. In this talk, I’ll briefly go over what a front-end framework is and why you might want to use one; I’ll compare Foundation and Bootstrap, the other most popular front-end framework; I’ll talk about setting up a Foundation project with Grunt and SASS; and finally I’ll give a quick demo of some of foundation’s components in action. If you want to read up on Foundation before the meetup, check out the docs at
