We're back... finally with talks and Q&A

Ok so we are back finally, and have hopefully now found a fixed venue so we can have regular meetings.

We will be in the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer pub on King Street, in the function room upstairs.

---------

Schedule:

Janice Tye - Running a WordPress business and making a profit (hopefully)
Methods of running a WordPress business based on my business experience over the past few years. Things that have helped me to retain clients and have recurring revenue.

Michelle Barker - Smarter Grids with Sass and Susy...and Wordpress!
In this talk I’ll look at how using Susy, a Sass grid framework, can make creating responsive grids for the web easier and speed up your design workflow. I’ll cover getting started with Sass and Susy in your Wordpress project, the advantages of using Susy, and some useful mixins and functions to help you create awesome grids.

Q&A - Make use of the knowledge at these meetups and ask us a WordPress question, hopefully someone should be able to help you out.

---------

If anyone wants to hang around afterwards I'm sure a few of us will pop down to the bar.

We are always on the lookout for speakers - so if you fancy talking at a meeting please get in touch.

Or if you have any ideas for topics to cover, then let us know.

Look forward to seeing you there :)

    This Sitepoint article on Sass for Wordpress developers might be useful for some of you wanting to Sassify your workflow: http://www.sitepoint.com/sass-for-wordpress-developers/

    I also recommend anything written by Hugo Giraudel, he writes a lot about Sass: http://hugogiraudel.com/

    Thanks folks, was really good to catch up with some of you and to see two good talks. Well done all.

    I was just going to add that if you wanted to play around with SASS basics without all of the complexity of downloading it to your computer and creating a theme of your own, you can use the Custom CSS feature of the JetPack plugin. It includes the ability to add SASS code. Just select it from the "Preprocessor" dropdown when editing the CSS.

    Hope that's useful!

      Good point, you can also use the Sassmeister web app if you just want to start messing around with Sass and its various extensions (including Susy!) – it shows the CSS that your Sass compiles to, so you can get to understand what the different features are doing behind the scenes: http://sassmeister.co...­
