Please join us on Tuesday, April 2nd for the next Refresh Pittsburgh meet up at Left Field Meeting Space on the North Shore.
We’ll be starting around 6:30pm. When you get to the building, walk into the larger glass doors that say “Smith Brothers Agency” and take the elevator to the 4th floor. The front doors will be on automatic lock for 7:15!
We have two great presentations lined-up for the evening:
Stop Writing CSS for Yourself, and Start Writing it for Other People.
Css preprocessors (Sass, Less, Stylus, all that good stuff) are changing the way we author layout for the web. But it’s not just a little time saving here, a few less prefixes there. Rob will show us how preprocessors give our code meaning, let us design systems, not stylesheets, and are moving professional css development into the world of open source.
Rob Wierzbowski is the co-founder of SassyPgh. He gets his hands dirty with front-end architecture, development, and IA, and did this horrible thing recently where he learned a little Ruby and absolutely loves it. You can follow him on Twitter here.
Clients vs. Side Projects
Jay Fanelli & Nathan Peretic
Running a client services business is a full-time job. Developing your own products and side projects is also a full-time job. How do you keep it all going?
In 2009, Jay and Nate co-founded Full Stop, a Pittsburgh web design and development shop. In 2010, they co-founded United Pixelworkers, a worldwide collective and online t-shirt shop for web designers and developers. Somehow, they’ve found time for both.
