Feels like ages since our last meet up, well that wait is almost over. We're being spoilt again by having 3 of Sydney's best CSS experts share their secrets.
This is the meet up where we should break through 500 members, help us get there by telling everyone you know to join up :) You know you'll be doing them a favour, and they'll think you're 11.5% more awesome as a result!
Doors open at 6:30pm and talks start at 7pm.
Making a Difference with Animation
Steven Fabre | @stevenfabre (http://www.twitter.com/stevenfabre) | http://stevenfabre.com
The impact of animation on the user's experience is often an afterthought. Steven is going to show you how animation can help make any interface more usable by explaining and demonstrating the animation's techniques he used on Canvas (https://www.campaignmonitor.com/canvas/), an online email builder tool created by Campaign Monitor.
Steven designed and built his first website at the age of 14. His passion for everything digital hasn't stopped since then. He's now Product Designer at Campaign Monitor, helping people send beautiful emails.
The Urge for Perfection
Mike Sharp | @msharp (http://www.twitter.com/msharp)
We all want to do what's best for those that consume the fruits of our labour. But we need to take a step back and pause every now and then to make sure we're doing the right thing for us and for the people we work with. (aka unconnected random meanderings and musings from the mind of Mike)
Sharpy built his first commercial website for a scientific recruitment company in 1996. He has dabbled in system administration for a Chemical distribution company, Implementation consultation for a call centre software company and web design/development for both sides of the media fence at Fairfax and News Ltd. He is currently a Design Engineer at Atlassian.

Sass (or Scss) is a relatively new language and if we don’t handle with care we’re in danger of causing more harm than good. This talk lays out some guiding principles so that our css won’t condemn us.
Felicity is a lead Interface developer at Fairfax Media focused on delivering usable, standards-compliant and innovative web solutions. Her role is to advise on accessibility and front-end coding practices; create opportunities for her team of developers and get her hands dirty in the code too. She doesn't always strike the right balance but she nearly always has fun trying!
