This months WP Liverpool will be held in the Kolbox room (https://www.we-are-hus.co.uk/kolbox) at the HUS bar. HUS is the bar we hold the social in after.

At the WordPress Liverpool Meetup (https://wpliverpool.org) this month we'll be looking at maintainable and scalable CSS with Ben Furfie and Dan Maby will be looking at plugins, discussing functionality and discovering if there's a better way to accomplish tasks in our sites.

We will be holding an informal meetup for WordPress developers, designers, users and business owner to speak out and let us know what you want from your local WordPress meetup.

# Writing Maintainable and Scalable CSS

CSS is like a gremlin. Cute, cuddly and easy to understand when you first pick it up. However, neglect it or don’t set out rules and it can quickly turn into a nightmare. Ben will discuss and share practical examples of how to write CSS for sites of all sizes; from a small blog up to multiple enterprise websites. At each step, we’ll not just look at how things should be done, but why and what happens when you ignore best practices.

Presented by Ben Furfie. Ben is the lead web developer within the digital marketing team at IMImobile. He is a full stack developer, with a particular focus on the front end - including enterprise architecture patterns and performance optimisation. He has spoken at a number of conferences and meetups about topics ranging from the business of web development, life as a developer and a number of technical topics.
