March General Meetup

Frameworks, continued.

Bourbon is a simple and lightweight mixin library for Sass. Neat is a lightweight semantic grid framework for Sass and Bourbon. Have no idea what this means? Well, that makes two of us. Luckily, we have an expert amongst our ranks. Alex Vazquez (@alexjvasquez) from Digisavvy will discuss this framework and how it can benefit your next project. 

For more info:

Neat: http://neat.bourbon.io/

Also, Steve will show what's coming in WordPress 3.9, due out on April 15.

All user levels are welcome to attend.

    Learned why collaboration is key; there is no way one person can know or do it all. Dipped our toes into the waters of Neat and Bourbon, WP 3.9 which is being released April 15th, and the mobile imperative. Information about other useful meetups was nice to learn about, too.

      Yup, this is why I do the weekly WordPress webshow WPwatercooler.com there is no way you can know everything but it's good to have friends that know bits and pieces

    Excellent talk @steve and @alex. I wasn't there in person, but caught the live stream. I'm going to give sass a shot!

    Excellent information on Bourbon and WordPress 3.9

    Alex lost me at "SASS" but then I'm a newbie content manager ... his discussion about what makes a site "responsive" was helpful. Steve's follow-on discussion about WP 3.9 was very good.

    Great meetup. Got cut off at the end, but I loved both talks. Cant wait to attend in person. SASS was a major discovery for me about a month ago. I wont go back. I encourage anyone on the edge to give it a try. If the documentation is too intimidating, take a look at the guide. You will read it in 10 minutes and its only 7 pages. http://sass-lang.com/guide

    I will be attending for the first time tonight. Would love to chat with anyone regarding setting up a new wordpress blog for a doctor's office. Would love to learn the basic plug ins needed, as well as how to set up an option to make an appointment through the blog that can send a text/email to the office when this happens. Thanks!
