About this event

This class will be taught over 2 nights running Wed and Thurs 7-9pm both days. This class is $50.00; the cost covers both days of courses.

This class is intended for students with a solid foundational understanding of CSS. This workshop will be a comprehensive introduction to Sass, a.k.a. everyone's favorite CSS pre-processor! 

Vanilla CSS is a fairly simple language, can do some pretty powerful things, but after a while... well, it can become rather tedious to work with. 

Enter Sass: Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets. Sass is a CSS meta-language and precompiler that makes the prettification of your website a breeze by adding invaluable features of more traditional programming languages. 

In this class, we'll jump right in to the Sass workflow and cover all the key game changers - nesting, variables, mix-ins, inheritance, and directives. We'll also cover some of the gotchas, tools and extensions, and tips on organization and coding standards.

Class Schedule: 

1. Students should be familiar and comfortable working with HTML and CSS (such as GDI’s Intro to HTML/CSS and Intermediate HTML/CSS class or equivalent training). 

2. A laptop with Sass installed. 
For Mac users, http://sass-lang.com/install (use the Command Line instructions) 
For Windows users, https://teamtreehouse.com/community/how-to-install-sass-on-windows

It is also helpful, but not required, to have some understanding of Git/Github and Command Line. If you do not already have experience with these tools, we recommend using these online resources:

• Codecademy’s Learn the Command Line 

• Github’s Online Training (click on “Try Git right in your web browser” at the bottom of the page)
