What do you think of when you hear the term “Arts and Crafts”? You may think yarns on needles or fabric on hoop. But process of making crafts like knitting and embroidery is quite arithmetical. It is a process of figuring out logic and tweaking variables.

This sounds all familiar to the web developer. Can we incorporate what we do with computers into these tactile projects like knitting?

In this talk, we'll look at how you can apply your dev skills to your craft project, and what doing crafts can teach you about front-end development.
