It is a proven fact that developers can’t write more than a dozen lines of CSS without experiencing eye-twitches, general stomach pains and the overwhelming urge to flip their desk over and “Hulk it Out”.

LESS - the CSS preprocessor - is here to help. With its variety of helpful features like variables, mixins, operations and color functions it is now possible to actually program CSS instead of just typing at it.

Topics covered will include:
- Options for LESS compliation
- Converting current projects
- Customizing Bootstrap with LESS
- LESS alternatives
