  1. Really helpful video, thanks so much!

  2. Good info on slate. Please release a new video for slate v1. Thanks!

  3. is it possible to view the themes totally offline by using the browser in offline mode?

  4. Heya, I know this video is a little old but maybe I can get a bit of help. I've followed the process, completed slate build and slate zip but no upload file has been generated. Is this something that has changed?

  5. Hi Everyone,

    Let me say I am using different framework and I want to create slider , will adding section.js and making necessary edits work or is section.js dependent on other js file except jQuery file.

    Thanks

  6. Hi Nathan,
    This webinar is truly amazing. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.
    I'm coding along and trying things out, haven't finished yet (I'm only at 21:55) but I'd like to know if you have a .csv of sample data that you could share. You have data for collections etc. Could you please share it?
    Thank you again

    Maggie
