About the Web Design Workshop: Grid frameworks share some common problems: they’re clunky, hard to modify and rely upon presentational markup. But the power of Sass can save us from frameworks. We can design flexible grids, create efficient code and ditch presentational markup for good. Learn how to create your own flexible grid system!
