Upcoming WordCamp Sacramento: “Using CSS3 in WordPress” by Suzette Franck

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! 🙂


 

“Suzette Franck: WordCamp Awesome Person #1” by Russell Aaron

Suzette Franck is one of the first, of many, individuals I met outside of the Vegas WordPress Community. At the time, she was the evangelist for a company called Media Temple. This was before GoDaddy acquired the company in recent years. She has worked for some awesome companies and I’m completely jealous. No joke.

Suzette Franck: WordCamp Awesome Person #1

Suzette Franck has been to more WordCamp events, than any other person I know. She has spoken at almost every single one of them. She’s extremely knowledgeable in the world of HTML & CSS. HerWordCamp Talks are always packed with new users and advanced developers who need to learn a thing or two about becoming better with CSS.

When I first started writing my Gravity Styles WordPress Plugin, Suzette Franck was the first person I contacted. I asked if she had any style tips for gravity forms. I received an email rom her containing the style sheet she uses for styling Gravity Forms on her personal site. She gave me permission to use her style in my plugin. I mean, does it get any better than that?

 

I share a story with Suzette Franck

One time, we both were speaking at WordCamp Albuquerque 2013. We both stayed at the some hotel and even though we did not share the same ride from the airport to our hotel, we both had the same story. The shuttle bus driver asked us if we were fans of Breaking Bad. The show filmed in Albuquerque. So it wasn’t that weird to ask. He then asked us if we wanted to see the house that one of the characters live in. It’s a real house they film in. He then informed us that he lived close to the house. A little creepy to say the least.

I cherish every memory I have with Suzette Franck, and I look forward to seeing her at more WordCamp Events.

This 75 minute hands-on presentation with Q & A will cover the basics of how to get started with and how to use some of the awesome modules that come with Jetpack. Jetpack requires a WordPress.org account and a publicly accessible WordPress website, which will be necessary to participate in the class lessons.
