About this event

Begin arriving at 6 PM, Meetup lecture starts promptly at 6:30

You’ve been meaning to start using Sass in your projects, right? But it looks hard…is it really worth figuring out? Yes, yes it is! Sass is “CSS with superpowers” and a wonderful entry point into best practices and broader software development concepts, like preprocessors. A preprocessor is just a program that takes in structured data inputs and outputs data in another format. First we’ll talk about what Sass is, how to get started, and identify a few key features you can apply to your own work right away.

Following the lecture, we'll have workshop time where you can install Sass and begin incorporating it into your own projects, request demos, or play around with its features based on starter code and exercises.

Prerequisites

You should be experienced with HTML, CSS, and have a general understanding of programming concepts like variables and functions. Previous experience in the command line with commands like cd and ls is recommended.

Additional Details

This workshop will be a comprehensive introduction to Sass, a.k.a. everyone's favorite CSS preprocessor!  In addition to the concepts behind a preprocessor, we will cover the following:

• Installing and compiling Sass via the command line

• Key Sass features like variables, nesting, mixins, and partials

• Incorporating Sass into existings projects

• Setting up Sublime Text for coding with the SCSS syntax

• Best practices for ensuring your code quality and project structure

This workshop will be taught by Lara Schenck, a freelance web designer/developer and instructor visiting from New York City.
