{less} - The dynamic stylesheet language.

Presenter : Anthony Olsen from Joomla Bamboo

LESS extends CSS with dynamic behavior such as variables, mixins, operations and functions.

CSS is very simple and straight forward. However, it also has its limitations, particularly when it comes to its maintenance. When we have thousands of lines of styles and some separated CSS files to maintain, things will problematic.

To solve the problem, a CSS pre-preprocessor is created to allow us to compose styles in a more dynamic way. There are a few solutions, but the one that Anthony is going to cover this time is LESS.

Parking is available on the streets just near by on William and Park Streets, as well as east down ~15 Wakefield street multi-level commercial carpark.

The map link is correct for those of you needing directions.

      We love your honesty Jenny! Maybe we should do an "introduction to the Joomla template night" that covers CSS as well

    Brilliant presentation from Anthony. Even the newbies related to his in depth detail and itemised processes for {Less}. I am sure notr one person left the room without gaining something of importance. Even the guru himself (big man) was impressed and thats not easy to do.
