Sass has become an essential language to learn for front-end developers. It helps you write your code faster, pull off things that sometimes seem like magic, and it’s also a part of many modern workflows.
This course is going to teach you how to use Sass, how to integrate it into your workflow, and push you with challenges, helping you become a better front-end developer.
So this is exciting. I’m launching my first course, and if you’re here on this page, it means you’re one of the very first people to even hear about it.
As you might have guessed from the name of this course, it’s going to be about learning Sass. It’s geared both toward people who’ve never used Sass as well as to those who already use it, but want to step up their game. It’s also going to be about much more than just learning Sass.
Because Sass is effectively CSS, just with some added functionality, while the focus of this course is learning to use Sass to its full potential, I also see it as an opportunity to go over medium to advanced CSS techniques as well.
This course won’t just be about learning how to use Sass, it’s about to be about learning to be a better front-end web developer.
Here is the section by section breakdown of Learn Sass:
It will also include challenges to ensure that you’re learning as you go through the course. I won’t just be hand feeding you things, I’ll be giving you things that you need to figure out on your own (based on what I’ve covered).
I’m assuming you already know your way around both HTML and CSS. You should be able to follow along pretty well even if you’re relatively new to both of these languages, but a basic understanding of them is essential.
This course also doesn’t solely focus on Sass as a language. Understanding the language itself is important, but it presents us with an opportunity to change how we work on our projects. This course teaches you not only the language of Sass, but examines how to use it in the real world as well.
It also dives into intermediate and advanced level CSS as well. Sass is, at the end of the day, a fancy way to write CSS after all. So how could we learn Sass really well if we don’t also get into some higher level CSS stuff along the way?
We’ll look at putting together a full, multi-page website, where I’ll examine file structure and general workflow concepts, as well as get into class naming conventions for our CSS, and more, along the way.
This course isn’t just about learning how to use Sass, it’s about learning how to be a better front-end developer.
I tried to approach things a little differently with this course than what you see elsewhere. Instead of just giving you information and having you follow along, I also present you with challenges along the way. It’s one thing to copy what I’m doing, it’s another to actually take what I’ve shown you, and to use it all on your own to be able to complete the challenge.
It also covers more than Sass as a language as well, looking at how to use it in your day-to-day workflow by building out real projects. We’re looking at everything from file organization to naming class naming conventions and more.
