The world is getting hip to Sass! Posts and primers about Sass are more and more ubiquitous. But unless explicitly declared, you'll never know if a site has been built with Sass. That's where NYC Sass comes in. We are here to answer the burning question: "How'd they do that?"
Cemre Güngör, Designer/Founder of much anticipated startup Branch, and Ward Penny, developer at buzzy Chole and Isabel, are taking the stage to talk about how they are leveraging sass.
Cemre is going to talk about how they make our life easier at Branch using SASS: How Branch built their pattern and mixin library, including their grid mixins which helped them make the site responsive faster, how Branch uses icon fonts, some pitfalls to avoid with overusing @extend's, and lots more.
Ward is going to talk about making beautiful (and Responsive) product with Sass + Compass on Shopify.
This month is also super special–it's our 6-month anniversary!! If you've been to our events, you know how we roll. Expect some anniversary extravaganza. We're thrilled to have made it to this point. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for the fabulous support from you, our members and the amazing developers/designers that have stepped up to present. The 17th is for you. Come learn, eat, drink, and rock your sassiness.
A super big thanks to Pivotal Labs for sponsoring the space for our Meetup. Sustaining sponsor Vox Media provides us with all the beer, fruit, chips, and snacks.
