December 7, 2015 — In this talk we’ll drop most of the regular box-model in CSS and start exploring flexbox. A new (and native) way to align, order and position elements in css. We’ll be live-coding a theme-page and getting a glimpse into the concrete advantages of using flex over the current techniques.
November 17, 2015 — It’s easy to get caught up adding HTML classes (and IDs) to each and every element we want to style, but the fact is, WordPress helps us out with specific targeting by adding its own classes and IDs to certain elements on every page and post. Cleverly utilizing WordPress’s default page build along with CSS’s pseudo classes and combinators makes it possible to be highly specific with our targeted styles while leaving the original HTML completely alone. In short, if we look for ways, we can often avoid adding more classes and wrapping text in spans to have WordPress and CSS do the work for us.
November 17, 2015 — An introduction to Sass for beginning developers or power users who already have a basic understanding of CSS. This talk will go over getting started with Sass in WordPress theme development, including: Sass vs CSS, setup options (theme file structure or use of a CSS plugin), understanding variables, nesting, mixins, extends, and libraries like Compass and Susy.
Additionally, this talk can cover use cases for integrating the Sass version of frameworks like Bootstrap or Foundation without having to clutter your theme’s markup. With that you get the best of both worlds (bespoke and human-readable classes and the springboard for development and design that frameworks provide).

September 21, 2015 — Ever wanted to make small changes to the look-and-feel of your site but weren’t sure how to go about it? Itching to change the colour of your site title, tweak the size of your paragraph text, or hide the date on your posts? Let’s go on a CSS adventure together! In this session you’ll learn some basic CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and we’ll look at some practical examples, using a browser inspector to customize our site’s design.
Some basic HTML knowledge is helpful, but not required. You should be open to looking “under the hood” at a site’s HTML and CSS.
