The latest incarnatino of Zen is built on top of css preprocessor: sass, compass, and the amazing www.zengrids.com -- which is not exclusive to Drupal. This presentation will be a hands on demonstration of how to setup a zen subtheme and then utilize compass & zengrids for some amazingly fast and flexible mobile-first theming in Drupal. Depnding on the crowd there will be plenty of time for theory, questions, and hands-on demos.
