Preprocess all the things!


On October 17th, I’ll be giving my first talk in quite some time, and I’ll be covering a topic that I once feared, but have quickly grown to love: CSS Preprocessors.

Writing CSS isn’t inherently difficult, but it could be much more efficient to author. In this talk, I’ll introduce you to the wonderful world of pre-processing with LESS and Sass. We’ll work through a sample project, where you’ll learn how to write your own mixins, use variables, and more. (And fear not, getting started is easier than you ever imagined.)

User Research Workshop

Jenn DownsNext weekend, MailChimp’s Jenn Downs will be conducting a half-day user research workshop at I’m really excited to have Jenn back in Augusta so soon after Web Afternoon Augusta.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to design moderated and unmoderated usability tests and user interviews, recruit test participants, interview customers (by asking all the right questions), and analyze and share results that really get noticed and read. You’ll also look into running tests on mobile devices with new usability testing apps and DIY methods.

This event is strictly limited to 20 seats. Admission is free thanks to the kind support of MailChimp, but you must RSVP in order to attend. Lunch will be provided.
