If you’re still writing Plain Old CSS, you’re behind the times and slowing yourself down. In recent years, “CSS Preprocessors” like LESS, Stylus and SASS have emerged that make writing and maintaining CSS — particularly fancy CSS3 stuff — faster and easier than ever before.
In this session, Ben will introduce you to his favorite CSS preprocessor, SASS, and the accompanying Compass library that makes writing sophisticated, optimized cross-browser CSS a breeze. After briefly covering how to get SASS+Compass set up in a development environment (e.g. a Mac or Linux server), we’ll go over the basics of SASS syntax and the language structure before diving in to highlight a few of the more convenient and awesome parts of the Compass library.
You’ll be blown away at how easy SASS+Compass make it to keep your CSS organized, write responsive styles, generate easy-to-manage sprites, and output compiled CSS that’s compressed for production. You’ll never want to go back to writing plain old CSS ever again!
Ben Byrne is one of the co-managers of HTTQ and has presented locally at Webuquerque (HTTQ’s predecessor) and WordCamp. Co-founder of Cornershop Creative, Ben does everything from UX planning to PHP programming, but his sweet spot is really in design and front-end development. SASS has changed his life and he hopes it’ll change yours too.
