He will also demonstrate a range of techniques for increasing the flexibility of your re-usable components. These techniques include snippet conditions, overriding a snippet variable definition for a topic, and overriding a variable definition for a target. In addition, Matthew will explore real-life scenarios within which each of these techniques could save you significant time and money.
