Speaking at AWDG

awdgIn a couple of weeks, I’m going to do something I didn’t think I’d ever do: I’m speaking about CSS Preprocessors at an Atlanta Web Design Group meetup.

Over the past few years, I’ve visited Atlanta a few times a year and live-tweeted AWDG talks. This time, I’ll be on the other side of the crowd. I doubt I’ll ever get used to speaking in front of people, but this is a topic I’m passionate about and I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned with others.

For those attending the talk, my goal is to show you that getting started with a CSS Preprocessor like LESS or Sass/SCSS is easier than you think, and will require you to change very little in your current workflow(s). I resisted making the switch because I thought it was difficult, but I’ve since gone from experimenting with it on single projects to having all of my coworkers using it.
