Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

What“Introduction to Sass (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets)”, with Josh Timonen

Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday July 14 will be “Introduction to Sass (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets)”, with Josh Timonen.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Sass has been growing in popularity since Hampton Catlin first introduced it in 2005.  Sass, which stands for Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets, helps you write less-verbose code with better organization.

Originally a Ruby technology, Sass can help organize and streamline any web application’s styling that uses CSS, including ColdFusion projects.  You’ll see what Sass has to offer, how to set it up, and how to write it.

Come see what Sass, and it’s new variation SCSS, can do for your styling workflow.

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE “LOGIN AS GUEST” option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment. But there’sno need to RSVP if you can’t make it let alone explain why you can’t. With over 2,600 members, no worries. 🙂

FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Add to my calendar”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
