CSS with Sass: Take the Easy Route with Tim Palac

Sass and other CSS pre-processors are beyond buzz - it's now an essential skill. If you're not running your code through a pre-processor, it's time to start.

This talk by Tim Palac will focus on setting up Sass, basics on what it provides you, and methods to replace your existing processes. We'll specifically address making media queries, nested classes, starter styles, and integration with CSS frameworks.

See you at 630 for burgers and networking! Bring your friends, we're going to have a couple months of incredible topics.

    My only complaints: too fast for me to take notes (after mentions of Scout and Compass); plus networking all too brief (partially my fault for being ill). My previous Sass encounter was at a MeetUp a couple years ago, wherein my only takeaway was finally getting to use variables with CSS; this time I was presented with object-oriented concepts which I am much quicker to grasp nowadays. Like anything else, Sass looks like something I could do if I had the resources to do it every day.

    Hey all, I'm on my way and realized I forgot my HDMI adapter for my mac. If anyone is able to bring one for me, that would save the day!

    I'm sorry, Tim. I really want to be there but I am buried with working trying to prepare for a client demo tomorrow at 9am. I am sure your presentation will be excellent!

    Hey all! It looks like we've got a full RSVP list for Thursday. If you're not planning to go, please drop off so others can go. Really looking forward to presenting this primer on Sass and meeting a bunch of new folks :).

    I was just thinking that I'd like to find someone to present on this topic at my group -- but instead I'll attend yours!
