Dale gave a great presentation at the Milwaukee Web Design Meetup group. Although I didn't catch the entire presentation (came late), his presentation brought to light that web and UI design can now be accomplished in a modular and structured approach. This approach is most applicable to large development teams and projects where they will reap the most benefits. He has also contributed to the community by creating a guide to this topic which currently is sorely missing.

He is also a great speaker and was able to give detailed answers to questions asked by the attendees. Definitely worth a trip if you are a web designer or a UI engineer.

Great Presentation. OOCSS is a another step to bridges the gap between each page being a 'piece of art' unique and separate from other pages versus a reuseable component of the development process. OOCSS makes the markup style sheets more like good programming practices rather crazy practice of cut and paste. Dale did a great job showing this.
