Syntactic Awesomeness! Debut of NYC Sass & Compass Monthly Meetup

CSS Preprocessors are all the rage these days and they should be. Designing and developing web based user experiences is growing both more challenge and more exciting. CSS, our trusty friend, is inflexible, static, and unwieldy for today's needs. CSS Preprocessors fill the void and open up a whole new arsenal of tools for designers and developers.

So whether you are an advanced user, beginner, or sceptic, come to the first meetup for NYC Sass/Compass user group. We are planning on keeping this a monthly meeting and will have the next two at New Work City.

We have an open format planned for the first meeting. We want to cover what you want, so let us know. We'll review the suggestions and post the format at the end of next week. And while ideally this kickoff should have you convinced why we pick Sass over LESS, we will be happy to have a lightening talk on the subject.

Future meetings will eventual evolve to more structured presentation format. If you are using Sass & Compass and want to talk about your work and approach, please reach out to CS.

If there's a better day/date to consider for next month's meetup, let us know.

    I really enjoyed the meetup. I am an intermediate user of sass and compass but I still learnt a lot. I think talking about deployment and best practices was a very interesting part of the Meetup and I see it as a regular part.

    Tonight we are digging into Sass language features. There will be demos and we wil be taking your questions and answers throughout. Because there is so much to cover we will not focus on installation. Please come early or stay after and we'll help you get started/iron out your installation woes.
