January 11, 2016 — CSS preprocessors make developing clean and semantic stylesheets effortless. My talk will take someone through a basic structure for organizing Sass within a WordPress theme, using the Bones theme framework as an example.
I will 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 will address perhaps the greatest hurdle to immediately implementing Sass in your WordPress theme — compiling. I will take people through the common methods of doing this including Grunt, Compass, and WordPress plugins like WP-SCSS.

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.
