Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit: Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets

I had the fortunate opportunity to hold a session at this years Drupal Summit which was held in Vancouver. I talked about the use of Basic, a base started theme that I maintain, and SASS. SASS is short for Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets. It's a meta-language on top of CSS that’s used to describe the style of a document cleanly and structurally, with more power than flat CSS allows. Sass both provides a simpler, more elegant syntax for CSS and implements various features that are useful for creating manageable stylesheets. I've uploaded the slides to slideshare or you can view them after the break.

All in all, the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit was a blast thanks to the many sponsors, volunteers, and supporters. I always find the much smaller, more intimate Drupal gatherings more fulfilling and engaging than Drupalcon's. That being said, it always amazes me at how large the Drupal community is when showing up at a Drupalcon. apologies for the long overdue blog post!
