About This Course
Sass (aka Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets) makes stylesheet development and maintenance tasks easier by simplifying the CSS workflow. Sass looks similar to CSS, but introduces new concepts such as variables, mixins, nestings and selector inheritance. Sass brings programming to the often tedious process of working with CSS and styling webpages.
The Simplify your CSS Workflow with Sass training course covers covers all the essential parts of working with Sass, including installation, compiling to CSS, variables, mixins, extends, imports, functions, and loops and control flow.

The instructor demonstrated strong broad knowledge as well as technical in-depth when appropriate
I liked that we could determine what to learn, no time was wasted.
I had trouble understanding a certain concept, and told the instructor that I just didn't get it. While the class was busy with an exercise, he sat down with me, gave me material to read, and made sure I understood it before I moved on. I really appreciated that.
The instructor has a great attitude and pacing. Amazing how much he knows about JS!
