The MarsBased CSS & HTML Guidelines

Captain's log, stardate d406.y36/AB

Since we started MarsBased, we've completed a good share of projects. From all of them we've learnt something useful. But all this knowledge should be stored somewhere for further use, for instance, to train new developers.

Pretty much like we did with the release of the MarsBased blogging guide (part 1, part 2), we want to share what we have learnt about HTML5 & CSS3 with you all.

Things should not only work well. They can also look good.

Frontend developers, this one is for you.

Enter code refactoring. Everyone talks about what refactoring is, and how to do it, but we want to talk about the other three dimensions: when to do it, why, and who should do it.

We have been hosting Startup Circle and Startup Grind until we realised they shared the same dynamics and principles: educating, inspiring and connecting entrepreneurs by helping each other. Therefore, we decided to merge the two communities to take Startup Grind BCN to the next level.

Through all these months, we have learnt the following benefits of organising events as a company.
