Sweet Sassafras: A Designer's Dive into SASS

We are back for a new year of WordPress awesomeness!  Join us Tuesday February 4th from 7-9pm with guest presenter Liam Dempsey.

Designers have long heard of the wonders of SASS and how it makes for improved work flows and efficiencies in web design. Yet as designers, we've been worried by rumors of SASS being "codey" and "technical". Come hear from a designer who recently took the plunge into SASS.

Please note the new location.  Food and drinks will be provided.  More info on the new location http://www.uarts.edu/locations/campus/gershman-hall

    I'm giving an updated version of this presentation to the Philly 'burbs WordPress Meetup on Monday night. I'd welcome feedback on the original presentation. What worked? What didn't? What would you have liked to see more of? All constructive feedback eagerly invited! Comments via email are fine too!

    Definitely learned a lot and see the power and cleanliness os using preprocessors now. And codekit isnt as scary either :)

    Interested in coming but what is the parking situation? Also am I to bring my laptop?

    January 30, 2014

    • Liam D.

      Hey Jimmy -- my presentation won't be a hands-on tutorial as such. Still, having a laptop or something to check out links and follow along might be useful.

      February 1, 2014

    • Brad W.

      There are plenty of parking garages and street parking in the area.

  • Scott F.

    I hope the snow doesnt mess this up, do we get email notification if its cancelled?

    February 3, 2014

    • Brad W.

      If we decide to cancel the Meetup because of the weather everyone will receive an email letting them know. As of right now the Meetup tomorrow is still a go!
