I very lucky to have been selected to speak at the very first WordCamp Sacramento this year, right where my favorite cousins live! I will be giving my “Using CSS3 in WordPress” talk, which I also gave at WordCamp Toronto this October. However, this time, I will be adding more code examples and reworking my talk especially for the fine folks this upcoming November 7th! I am very excited for this WordCamp, especially since all tickets sold out in only 2 hours! It should be a fun, informative time for everyone!
Hey, but if you know CSS3 already, why not learn some Sass? I did a introductory talk at Minneapolis WordCamp on this, which was recorded, and you may find embedded below from WordPress.tv. The session is geared for those CSS wizards wanting to get their feet wet with some Sassy good times:
I hope to see you at WordCamp Sacramento and if you go please stop me and say hello! 🙂
On this episode of WPwatercooler: Brendan Sera-Shiriar, Russ Aaron, Jason Coleman, Chris Perryman, Josh Pollock, Jason Resnick, and Nikhil Vimal along with WPwatercooler regulars Jason Tucker, Suzette Franck, and Steve Zehngut talk how and why to build WordPress themes with the Foundation framework.
If you are a theme developer, using Sass or Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets is a time saving way to write your code and it is easy to learn once you are familiar with CSS. In this session, learn how to harness the power of variables, nesting, and mixins and take advantage of everything that Sass has to offer to write awesome code. In order to get the most from this session, you must have a good understanding of HTML and CSS.
