The Details

My greatest accomplishment at Recurly was the development of a styleguide from the legacy application. We were restricted by an inability to change any existing markup, apart from adding the occasional class from time to time. On top of that, we had some additional goals of simplifying the CSS, making it more modular, removing direct descendant selectors, and avoiding any situation where more than three selectors were used to target an element. It was a huge collaboration, bringing in Ops, developers of widely varied backgrounds, and UX. Ultimately it puts everyone in a better position to design, develop, and deploy more quickly and efficiently.
