    The speaker was great. Very passionate, and relatively effective in getting his ideas/views across. His app also had a really pleasant design aesthetic to it, so props!

    Christopher was an entertaining presenter with a great overview showcasing the capabilities of each technology without going unnecessarily deep on each. Pitched at a really accessible level.

    Thanks Mr. Webb! That was an awesome presentation. Sometimes new (to me) technology can be intimidating, but not they way you've laid it out. I can't wait to dig in.

    A friend and I produced this set of SASS Mixins for CSS3 features: https://github.com/3onesix/SASS-Mixins

    They are made for the more modern SCSS variant of SASS.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
