July 28, 2015 — CSS preprocessors make developing clean and semantic stylesheets effortless. My talk takes someone through a basic structure for organizing Sass within a WordPress theme, using the Bones theme framework as an example. I go through some of the benefits and cool tricks you can implement with this structure including breakpoint includes, variables, functions, nesting, and mixins. Finally I address perhaps the greatest hurdle to immediately implementing Sass in your WordPress theme — compiling. I take people through the common methods of doing this including Grunt, Compass, and WordPress plugins like WP-SCSS.
June 28, 2015 — You’ve been meaning to start using Sass in your projects, right? But it looks hard…is it really worth figuring out? Yes, yes it is!

Falling in Love with Sass for WordPress — Frederick Meyer
Learn why Sass, the CSS preprocessor, is better than vanilla CSS for complex projects, based on two key qualities of Sass: 1. It’s DRYer, and 2. It’s dynamic. The talk describes these benefits with reference to a complex real-life client project: creating a user-managed WordPress theme generator, with widths, color scheme, typography, etc., all changeable as Sass variables, compiling to one clean custom CSS stylesheet with no extra “theme options” DB calls.
Using Composer and WordPress — Kalen Johnson
Composer has taken the PHP community by storm, allowing projects to easily integrate PHP packages with their projects. Although WordPress doesn’t (yet) use autoloading and Composer, that doesn’t mean we as developer’s don’t have to. We walk through what Composer is, how to use it, then see how we can integrate it with our own WordPress projects, whether that’s a theme, plugin, or an entire WordPress site.
