• No Composed Looks
• No Custom Master Pages
• No Design Manager
• No Publishing Page Layouts (unless you need them)

Apply your "brand" (jQuery, custom JavaScript, custom CSS) with the click of a button, remove it just as easily. Update your assets using whatever editor suits your fancy: Notepad, Notepad++, Visual Studio, SharePoint Designer, Sublime Text, Hot Dog Pro (is that really still a thing), etc.

Every page? Yep... including application pages (_layouts), Web Part pages, wiki pages, dialog pages, publishing pages (if you insist); including every page in all future child Sites as well.

Change virtually anything you want:
• Change the color, size, background of virtually any element
• Hide elements that you don't want the user to see, provide a UX to resurface it if you wish
• Alter the color for each calendar in SharePoint Calendar Overlays
• Remove "Pages" from the SharePoint breadcrumb
• Add animations and transitions, anything jQuery can do really
• And so much more!

If you have a general understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and need to brand SharePoint, this session is for you.
