This class is a two-night series running on Monday, June 5th and Wednesday, June 7th from 6pm to 8:15pm.


Sass is a language that extends CSS3. Knowing Sass will boost your professional development, saving time at work while keeping your resume fresh with this in-demand skill. Need proof? Check thesesalary comparisons on Indeed.com to see for yourself.

Sass takes the principles of CSS and HTML - separation of presentational style from content - and supercharges them, making your sites CSS nimble and future-friendly. Well learn how to use Sass features like variables, mix-ins, nesting, and functions to make your CSS super clean and way more powerful - replacing the need for memorizing complex CSS3 selectors, hex codes and vendor prefixes. Along the way, youll install Ruby on Rails, learn to use the command line, enhance your browsers code inspector and write your own custom functions for Sass with some basic programming concepts to guide you.

To get the most out of this class, you should have a working knowledge of HTML & CSS. You may have taken Intro to HTML or HTML5/CSS3 through Girl Develop It, and have built your own site or already build websites regularly. You're comfortable with writing CSS already and are ready to take your skills to the next level. Please take our required CSS quiz to make sure you're ready for this class. A 7 out of 10 score means you qualify to take this class.
