Co-Meetup with the New York Compass and Sass Meetup

  • Oct 16, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This month, we're shifting gears from our previous design docs discussion to focus on the tech side. Our next meetup will be a collaboration with the New York Sass and Compass Meetup. (No idea what Sass and Compass are all about? A couple primers: Sass for Designers, Getting Started with Sass.)

As with previous Meetups, we'll have a number of short sessions, followed by general panel-type discussion.


Jonathan Berger is a designer, developer and technologist. He spends his days building software with Pivotal Labs and his nights and weekends working on Market Publique. Jonathan is going to talk about Spike Driven Design.

Jean-Pierre is Founder of Zybragroup, a design and development agency and he'll present on Agile Wordpress Theme Design with Sass. He'll cover how he uses helper partials to aid building responsive themes.

Mark Reilly is a User Experience Designer for NYU's Information Technology Services. He is a hybrid web designer, front end developer and is a Sass and Compass enthusiast. He's going to present on Sassy Style Tiles, an open source solution to quickly and easily generating style tiles in CSS and HTML using Sass and Compass. Style Tiles ( is a great solution for getting away from Photoshop comps. They allow a separation of style from layout. Especially now with responsive web design there's no longer a definitive layout. However, style tiles are still being generated in Photoshop or FireWorks! Sassy Style Tiles lets you design in the browser not in pixel based AdobeLand.

Mason Wendell is VP of Creative at Zivtech and is going to talk about using Sass for prototyping and designing/developing with a styleguide driven approach. Mason is the creator behind Survival Kit, Breakpoint, coined the term Coding Designer, and author of many articles on RWD in Sass.

We hope you can join us!

    fantastic, open, energetic speakers. useful, edgy, new work. entire presentation had a great pace. would love to get an even more technical and specific talk. a round table or other structure that allowed more dialogue and back and forth would be delightful.

    In the future it would be nice if these meetups were announced more than 5 days in advance -- October, November, and December are particularly busy months and I would appreciate more lead time to mark my calendar. I've been looking on this meetup board for several weeks looking for the date of the next one and I tried emailing the organizers asking for advanced notice but heard nothing back about the date of the next one. Sorry to be a whiner but planning several weeks in advance makes a difference for me. Thanks & keep up the good work behind creating these great topics.

      And finally, by "announced, " I don't mean to have the event topic or speakers finalized, all I want to do is mark my calendar ahead of time so I don't make other plans. Perhaps this problem would be solved if this meetup were regularly on the 3rd Tuesday of even-numbered months and I could just make a repeating event (Is it?). If I'm being a dumb*ss please let me know.

      Hey Jason - totally agree that it would be great to announce further in advance, and definitely something we strive for. However, there are a lot of logistics involved, so we often aren't able to get the announcement out until 1-2 weeks before the event.

    Do we need to purchase a ticket, as usual, or is this co-meeting without a fee?

    • Anders R.

      No fee this time around :)
