As the founder and director of A.H. Web Design I find myself reading about the latest web technologies as the major part of my daily routine. A few years ago there were some intriguing articles surfacing about Sass. It wasn’t until last years’ WordCamp, listening to Suzette Franck speak on the topic, I was actually inspired to dive deep into the pre-processor. Since then I’ve been in love with all things Sass! I speak about Sass and Web Design at a few High Schools in the Atlanta area and attend the Atlanta Sass meet up group monthly. I’m a huge fan of WordPress and have been working with the CMS since version 2.9 (Carmen McRae). I’ve developed over 90% of my client’s sites using WordPress as the foundation.
