TRAINING: Fast Track to Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets (May 12, 2017)

Posted by Fig Leaf Software on Apr 26, 2017 8:02:00 AM

Sass is the most mature, stable, and powerful professional grade CSS extension language in the world. Sass lets you use features that don't exist in CSS yet like variables, nesting, mixins, inheritance and other nifty goodies that make writing CSS fun again. Once you start tinkering with Sass, it will take your preprocessed Sass file and save it out as a normal CSS file that you can use in your web site. This one-day course covers Sass and Compass (a CSS authoring framework for Sass) development essentials. Whether you're developing a static site, a dynamic site with a CMS (Drupal), or building an advanced web-based application (Sencha), you'll find that Sass is an indispensable tool for taming and optimizing your CSS.
