Intro to Sass

  • Sep 28, 2013 · 12:00 PM

The Sass website defines it as "Sass is a meta-language on top of CSS that’s used to describe the style of a document cleanly and structurally, with more power than flat CSS allows. Sass both provides a simpler, more elegant syntax for CSS and implements various features that are useful for creating manageable stylesheets." Everyone else defines Sass as "FREAKIN' AWESOME!"

In this class, we'll learn what Sass is and what makes it so cool (like variables, nesting, and mixins). We'll review options for file structure and compiling your code.

This class is best for students who have a solid understanding of CSS and want to expand their skill set.

All students should have a text editor installed on their computer prior to class. We recommend Sublime Text ( We will also be using CodeKit in class, which can be downloaded as a trial or purchased for $25.

About the Instructor: Sophie Shepherd is a designer at Happy Cog in Austin. After graduating from film school, she taught herself how to code and fell in love with web design. She hasn't looked back since. When not doing web stuff, Sophie likes road trips, running, and cooking.

    excellent- I was already comfortable using the sass language since I have read much about it and have used less. But I only used less because I couldn't figure out how to get Sass to run/compile. Now I know-- this was a huge hurdle.

    I have also created an easy step-by-step guide for other people on how to get it running on a Mac or Windows. I would be happy to share it with anyone.

    I was introduced to Sass 20 years ago and we got married. ;-)


    Does Sass work with IE 6 - 8?

    • Cecy C.

      Hi Dennis, Sass is a CSS pre-processor which will compile a full CSS file for you. Whether the CSS compiled by Sass is compatible with IE 6 is up to you. You can always use tools like Modernizr to ensure your code is backwards compatible.­
