A New Workshop at WebDevConf
I'm really happy to announce, after the success of last years workshops, that I'll be presenting a new workshop on "Getting Super Powers with Sass" at this years WebDevConf in Bristol.
Getting Super Powers with Sass
So, you’re comfortable with CSS but you really want to jump into a telephone box and fly away with Sass as your new super power. Getting Super Powers with Sass will show you the basics of the programming language before flying into practical and pragmatic uses to make creating CSS as easy as putting on your cape.
The workshop will teach
- The Sass basics of nesting, variables, mixins, extends, placeholders and functions.
- How to decide upon an ideal file and folder architecture.
- Creating mixins for common snippets of CSS.
- How to write and maintain variables for a project.
- Where to ‘stop’ when using Sass in your code.
- Where Sass fits within a modern front-end architecture, looking at Gulp and Grunt.
The workshop will be have aspects where you will need to use a laptop, this ideally will also need Sass installed.
About the event
WDC (webdevconf) is a one day conference held in Bristol each year, with a day of workshops held beforehand. My workshop (Getting Super Powers with Sass) will run on Thursday 8th October 2015 in the afternoon.
Here are a few testimonials from previous workshop attendees.
“An amiable, engaging and extremely useful run through Sass from top to bottom. Stu concisely covered the basics, followed up with some nifty advanced techniques and wrapped up the day with a Q&A on structuring Sass projects.”Dan Dineen - University of Bath
“Stu did a fantastic job making Sass accessible to beginners. The workshop was incredibly practical, light on preaching and heavy on pragmatism. Even an old dog like me, came away wanting to give Sass another go. Highly recommended!”Alex Morris - Adobe
“The workshop was well balanced, Stuart shared examples and got us using Sass within minutes of the workshop starting, it was a practical hands-on introduction from a clear expert. The relaxed & informal setting made it a pleasure to attend. ”Steve Kirkley - @stevekirtley
“Stu’s knowledge of Sass and his way of explaining the ins and outs, for me, are unparalleled to anyone else I know. Highly recommended if you are new to Sass, or are interested in increasing your understanding of this wonderful language.”Nick Toye - Pixels & Code
