Our next Web Standards meeting is coming up on Friday, November 15th.

Tony Thomas from Student Unions & Activities (SUA) will give an overview on
how to get started using SASS--a CSS preprocessor. Jim Hart from University
Relations will join him to talk about popular SASS libraries and how they
used them in responsive web design projects.

Web Design standards are moving at a very fast pace and developers can’t
always keep up. SASS (and mixins) can help save time by generating
vendor-prefixed CSS values for you. It also lends itself to better
organization of styles with things like variables, loops and control
structures. It also makes it easy to separate styles into many files and
“import” them to generate a single, minified CSS file. In short, it saves
time-and it’s fun!

The talk will be part presentation, part demonstration and part Q & A.

We'll provide pizza this month, so please RSVP at the link below by the end
of Tuesday the 12th so we have a good head count.

Location: 325 Education Sciences

Online: Google Hangout--we'll post the link on this list shortly before we
begin.

Time: As always, food and networking from about 11:30 to noon, then we'll
start the presentation.
