Here’s why you should join us!

By coding along with us for this two day workshop you’ll:

  • Learn about some of the common CSS pitfalls that motivated the Preprocessor Revolution
  • Get hands on with options you can use from the command line, and in a node build tool to transform Sass files to CSS
  • Build a shell script that transforms a Scss file into two CSS files: one that’s human-friendly for a development environment, and one that’s smaller for a production environment
  • Look at the pitfalls of the CSS @import at-rule, and how Sass provides similar capabilities while addressing some common problems
  • Use Sassscript variables & operators to store and re-use values to reduce redundancy and improve consistency and maintainability throughout your styles
  • Expressively manipulate colors, numbers, lists, maps and more using Sass built-in functions
  • And much more!

Spend the Day Immersed With a Leading Sass Master

Sass, and other preprocessors were created for a reason: CSS becomes tedious to write and difficult to maintain as an application becomes more complex.

While there have been recent major advancements in the way we organize the JavaScript in our modern web applications, CSS has comparatively hardly evolved at all. Instead, many teams rely on preprocessors such as Sass, Less, PostCSS, Stylus and others. These are essentially extensions of the foundational CSS concepts, which are compiled into regular CSS at build time.

In this course, we’ll start with regular CSS, and quickly layer on new capabilities and tools that will change the way you think about your app’s styles. Quickly, after moving on from the basics, we’ll start to see how style can be parameterized and re-used, avoiding repetition and redundancy, while keeping everything readable and maintainable.

Next, we’ll look at directives that bring imperative code concepts into stylesheets, like looping, conditional blocks and more. Finally, we’ll experiment with building our own Sass extension, where we can add new vocabulary and capabilities to the way we express styles.

What Past Attendees Are Saying

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."

Steve Jakubowski

"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."

Adrian Murillo

"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."

Nate Yourchuck

"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"

Laurence Bates

"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."

Jeff Sims

"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."

Dana Greenberg

"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."

Richard Ranke

"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
