Learning LESS

CSS is what makes our sites pretty, but it's not the most efficient language. This presentation will cover the LESS CSS preprocessor. We'll talk about how LESS can make CSS fun again, how you can get better CSS file organization and how to deliver compiled minified CSS to the browser.

 

Prerequisites
This is for WordPress developers who are comfortable with regular CSS and want to learn how to write it faster. You should not be afraid of CSS and setting up minification through a GUI.

 

Speaker Bio
Curtis McHale is the owner of SFNdesign (which is really just him at this point) which is a web agency specializing in custom WordPress development. He lives in Chilliwack because that's enough city for him and spends as much time as possible out of the office with his 2 year old daughter or on his road bike.

    I thought the projector was fine....projectors that are higher than 1024 x 768 resolution can be pricey....More importantly the presenter was great....a quick and to the point presentation...the slides were nicely designed too...Great presentation...

      Funny you should mention the projector. It's actually a full 1080p projector, but for some unknown reason Macs have a really hard time figuring out how to communicate with it and default to the lower setting. I'm researching the issue and will hopefully have a solution for the next meetup.

    Sorry guys, the magical Google+ Hangout got completely mangled due to a poor connection. We'll try again next time, maybe with a long LAN cable.
