Rob Ruiz, Bizzle Designs (http://www.bizzledesigns.com/)

Rob is a co-organizer of WP Omaha and owner of Bizzle Designs in Omaha. He was also a speaker at WordCamp Omaha earlier this year. Oh, and he's a WHIZ at CSS!

If you can understand HTML markup and know a few CSS rules, you can shift, turn, hide, recolor, resize, and even animate just about ANYTHING on your site.

CSS is NOT programming - it is simply describing a list of rules that the page needs to follow. Some of the things we'll cover include:

• Targeting - Elements, IDs, and Classes
• Understanding Style Rules and their values
• Specificity - Cascading Style Sheets
* Positioning Elements - Yes, it can be tricky
• Interactivity
• Animation

If you feel empowered after this talk, you should consider signing up for the WP Omaha HTML/CSS Course (http://wpomaha.org/product/html-css-workshops-series/) where we will expand on this with even more advanced CSS goodies like Flexbox, Grid, Advanced Element Targeting, Implementing 3rd-icon Icon Sets, Adding Web Fonts, and much, much more.

Please remember to RSVP—and just as important, if you end up not being able to make it, please adjust your RSVP so we have an accurate headcount. Agape Red is so gracious to host this monthly Meetup, and they also spoil us with delicious pizza and soft drinks. Let's show our gratitude by helping them order the right amount of pizza—not too much and not too little, but just enough. :wink:

Notebook, pen, laptop (optional), and a willingness to learn.
