This month we're going to dig into the powerful style-sheet language known as Cascading Style Sheets or CSS.

Learning how to leverage CSS goes far in customizing (or creating!) themes in WordPress. We'll cover the basics of CSS syntax, how to find the current style of an element, and where in WordPress you go to change it! If we have time, we might even go into into something called CSS preprocessors, which bring even more capabilities to the language.

Here's a few links to whet your appetite.

• Starting with HTML & CSS (

• A good list of all css properties and what they do (

• Codex entry on CSS (

• CSS Zen Garden ( - the same content with multiple layouts via CSS

Note: We're starting a little later this month. Folks said rushing to the meetup after work was a bit of a pain. I hope this means more folks can make it out - like you!

We're meeting at Lab1500 (, a brilliant co-working space located on Washington Ave.

1500 Washington Ave., Suite 100
St. Louis, MO 63103

The entrance is on 15th Street and we'll be on the ground floor. Parking is on the street and the meters stop running at 7pm.


Since many folks attend with questions in-hand we want to make it easier for them to get answers. Instead of making people wait till the end of the evening to ask their questions, we're going to dedicate the first 30 minutes of the evening to questions and conversation.


6:30pm to 7:00pm - Question & Answer time. Come to help others, ask questions, and socialize before the main event.

7pm to 7:15pm - Introductions and housekeeping.

7:15pm to 8:30pm - Main topic of the evening and presentations.
