March 2013 WordPress Meetup

  • Mar 20, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Knectar Design, Inc.

This month Mattew Wimmer of WimmerWorks.com has volunteered to do a presentation on Compass and Sass. Sass makes CSS fun again. Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. Matthew will explain why you need it, steps to install it, and how you can start using it. Plus, "other insane time-saving, workflow-pimping preprocessing and framework fairy dust to consider."

Also this month we are going to try to introduce "plugin picks." There are currently 23,988 plugins listed on WordPress.org. They are a large part of why we use WordPress. They can be very simple to very complex. Filtering out the gems from the junk can be a difficult process. So, I invite you to bring a name of a lesser known plugin that you have used recently that you have found helpful and share it with the group. We know about All in One SEO, Akismet, W3 Total Cache, JetPack and Contact Form 7. Try to share something more unique. It can be free or premium.

This meetup is for developers, designers, end-users and site owners. Bring along your questions, too and as group we will see if we can answer them.

Knectar Design's offices are on the third floor. Follow the WordPress Meetup signs. If you came last month, we will be down the hall in a larger space from the location we had met in.

Refreshments will be offered. A small donation is suggested to cover expenses.

Notes from last month's meetup can be found at:

    Hey everybody. Thanks for coming last night. I'm glad that folks seemed to enjoy and benefit from the talk! I've made a little blog post with links to some Sass and Compass resources, and a link to my slides, in case you want a second look. http://wp.me/p3dzGM-11

    Very good presentation. I had just been telling my coworker that I thought it may not be worth pursing Sass for our template files,but I'm back in the game!
