This month, we have Dustin Schau (http://twitter.com/SchauDustin) discussing CSS in JS: Benefits, Drawbacks, and Tools.

There has recently been a proliferation of libraries and utilities that attempt to fix what is apparently broken in CSS by... writing it in JavaScript. Prior to the creation of these utilities, most of us did it with good old-fashioned CSS, some others in LESS, and others still in SASS, or some utility that cures the ills of writing in CSS. This talk will deep dive into the methodologies of these CSS in JS tools, the benefits and drawbacks of using them, and plenty of examples of how to author your CSS in JavaScript--that is, if you leave thinking that there's validity to the practice!

Networking and pizza starts at 6:00PM

Talk is at 6:30PM

Afterwards, we'll head to DJ's Dugout in Aksarben for further disucssion and beer.js!
