Preprocess all the Things!

A Look at CSS Preprocessors and Front-End Workflows

Writing CSS isn’t inherently difficult, but it could be much more efficient to author. In this talk, I’ll introduce you to the wonderful world of pre-processing with LESS and Sass. We’ll work through a sample project, where you’ll learn how to write your own mixins, use variables, and more. (And fear not, getting started is easier than you ever imagined.)

Your Speaker 
Chris Harrison is an Augusta-based, front-end developer for Morris Communications. He runs RefreshAugusta, is a co-founder of, organized Web Afternoon Augusta, and live tweets for several conferences in the Southeast.

    At this point the event is pending on safe road conditions. Not only would all of you need to drive to Midtown, but Chris has to come from Augusta. If the roads are safe we'll have the event as planned. If not, we'll postpone to the following week.

    I will post here and on the @awdg twitter stream by 2pm tomorrow with the official announcement.

    Looking forward to it. Is the attendance capped out? I'm trying to recruit a couple of coworkers.

      Looks like some more spots opened up!

  • Eric Scott S.

    Going to keep a watch on this topic to see if a spot opens up. I'm working on encouraging and promoting growth of Sass preprocessing at Georgia Tech, but I'd like to hear more about LESS and Stylus.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone in a couple of weeks!
