Practical Sass/SCSS for Web, Mobile, & Desktop Development with Karl Shifflett

Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, March 22, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Sass is CSS with superpowers. It has been actively supported for 9 years. In this session we’ll cover Sass basics: installation, pre-processing, variables, nesting,  partials, importing, mixins, extending, and operators. Topics will be taught by creating a real-world application layout; we’ll cover common UI scenarios you face everyday in your development. You’ll quickly grasp the value and simplicity of Sass/SCSS. We’ll compare how developers write CSS today, and the benefits of using Sass/SCSS over plain CSS.

The meeting presenter is Karl Shifflett.

Since 1989 Karl has architected and developed desktop, web, and mobile software for: retail, warehousing, manufacturing, small-medium city governments and water authorities, Tax Assessment, and DIY projects. He worked at Microsoft as a Program Manager on the WPF and Silverlight Designer Team for Visual Studio 2010, as a Program Manager for the patterns & practices team on Prism and Web Guidance projects.
