libsass. What is it, how do you use it and what is it's impact on the Sass community as a whole? For the past few months now I have had the opportunity to use libsass on projects that are not really open to the idea of a Ruby dependency. Interesting challenges have arisen from this and new solutions have come to light. Let's talk all about that.

First meetup at new space. Planning 30 minutes to talk about Sass functions, and then to spend the rest of the time talking about whatever folks want to talk about.

Is Sass somewhat of a mystery to you? How does it work? Why do some say that it is better then CSS? What's the difference between Sass and SCSS anyway? How can I integrate it into my design/development process? What are the benefits? What problems does it solve? Do I have to be a Rails developer to use Sass? Etc ...

"Sass 101 - a newb's guide" is designed to answer these questions and more. We'll quickly progress into the various instillation processes, basic use of the language, processing your first stylesheet and even have an introduction to Compass - the powerful Sass framework. By the end of this course you will:

1. fully understand what a CSS pre-processor is;
2. be able to install and process Sass for your projects;
3. have mastered Sass' basic concepts;
4. and be introduced to the Compass framework.

With "Sass 101 - a news's guide", you will master the basics of Sass, even if you've never used a CSS pre-processor!

Where is it?

Substantial

What is it?

Sass is taking presentation layer development by storm. CSS and the standards group are not moving at a pace that developers need. Sass and Compass fills that gap.

Come and hang out, listen to discussions and see presentations on the latest and greatest Sass features.


Presentation: Placeholder Selectors

One of the frustrations of OOCSS concepts is the amount of presentational classes that need to be created and the method of applying them to the DOM.

Sass has looked to address this issue first with Mixins, then Extends, each with their own issues of duplicated code or creation of unnecessary code.

The creators of Sass bring us the final piece of the puzzle, 'Placeholder Selectors!' Leverage the strength of OOCSS or SMACSS to build an effective library of reusable objects without the unsightly creation of presentational classes and the unnecessary duplication of code.

Dale Sande will be presenting to the Seattle Sass Meetup his presentation for the upcoming DrupalCon, 'SASS - OO'S'CSS W/EXTENDS AND SILENT PLACEHOLDERS'

What's going to happen?
We are going to talk about Sass. Have questions about solutions, want an experienced Sass dev to review your solutions, or you are new to Sass and need help getting started.

New or experienced, there will be something there for you.

Who's going to DrupalCon in May? Who wants to listen to this guy talk about OOCSS v OOSCSS and Sass w/Placeholder Classes?

The best news is that if you are at DrupalCon this year, you get to do both!
