About the presentation: CSS is an amazing language that keeps evolving and incorporating more and more awesome features; however, utilizing LESS will extend CSS with dynamic behavior like variables, mixins, operations and functions thus adding even more *awesomeness* to this language and smoothing out your workflow. This presentation will take you through utilizing web frameworks like Bootstrap, Boilerplate in your development process and dig into some advanced CSS usage via LESS. In brief, I'll show you why you should be using LESS in your current & future projects, an overview of it's features, make you a pro and show you how to use it with other frameworks.

About the speaker: I'm a co-founder and VP of Product for a local startup: TripLingo, and I maintain an industry blog at VincentJordan.com, and ran 8BitFeed.com. I've been working as a Developer and Designer for over a decade and I'm known for crafting highly intuitive/engaging digital product — in addition for being an adrenaline junkie! I've had the opportunity to work for the military (I was enlisted in the US Navy and did various consulting work afterwards), educational institutions, creative agencies and startups. That said, currently much of my time is being focused on TripLingo, a language learning multi-platform application and being an awesome husband.
