CSS Brigade #7 — March 11th at 7pm at Hootsuite Headquarters

Welcome back to CSS Brigade! No matter you experience using CSS to design and develop for the web, you’ll learn something new. We’re excited to announced that CSS Brigade #7 will be Wednesday March 11th.

  • Doors: 6:30PM
  • Talks begin: 7:00PM
  • Entrance closed during talks

This CSS Brigade focuses on theming: whether you’re building custom theme elements and need to think about how it applies generally, or you’re layering upon existing CSS frameworks for something specific and custom, there’s a lot to learn at this CSS Brigade.

Writing Custom CSS for Side Projects

Alanna Munro will speak about her experience theming Ghost and making the most of SVGs in her project documenting Vancouver’s apartment lettering.

Alanna is an interaction designer, typographer, letter-maker and code explorer. She freelances through alannamunro.com.

Theming Bootstrap

Matt Lambert is an expert in theming Bootstrap. By end of his talk you’ll know about the necessary tools, and be setup to start building your own theme using LESS.

Matt is a Front End Designer & Developer from Vancouver, BC, Canada. In the day he works for CA Technologies as a Senior Software Engineer. In the evenings, he works as a self-published author at mattlambert.ca. Matt also designs and develops themes and templates at cardeo.ca.
