Sass Workshop

Learn everything about Sass & Compass in one day

Would you like to start using the CSS pre-processor Sass, or do you want to use it more effectively? This workshop definitely is for you!

When & where

What will you learn

Sass & Compass are tools to make your life easier, no matter if you're a front-end or back-end developer. Stop repeating yourself by typing the same selectors over and over, and no more painful processes to create and modify image sprites.

During this workshop you'll first learn the basics of CSS pre-processors: what are they, why would you want to use them, how do they work and how are they different? After that we'll start working with Sass, because nothing beats practical experience.

We'll then add Compass and discuss automatic sprite generation, responsive design with Sass & much more. After taking the workshop you'll master Sass & Compass at an advanced level.

During the workshop there's plenty of time to practice and ask questions. A few weeks before the workshop takes place you'll receive video instructions by email to guide you through the process of getting Sass to work on your laptop (not included in workshop, please bring your own).

A selection of the things we'll cover:

Whenever possible we'll use examples from actual production code. At the start of the workshop you'll receive all demo code, so you can follow along and make changes during the day. You're of course free to take this home for future reference.

New Sass 3.3 features will also be covered in the workshop.

Who is it for

The workshop is suited for everyone with at least a basic understanding of CSS. We start at the beginning, but will also cover advanced techniques. History has taught that new developers, people who already use Sass and back-end developers all learn a lot.

Who is teaching

Your teacher is Roy Tomeij, a front-end architect with over 6 years of experience in working with Sass. Since 2011 he has been a regular workshop teacher and speaker at conferences all over the world, including SassConf.
