Are you interested in learning more about Sass but find that whenever you try to delve in, you’re greeted by a discouraging barrage of technical mumbo jumbo? Are current Intro to Sass tutorials promising help for supposed novices only to assume that this group of (apparently very enlightened) novices has already read every CS book from The Cluetrain Manifesto to the The Pragmatic Programmer and already has an opinion on Less vs Sass?
Is that not you? Don’t worry! It wasn’t me either when I started digging into Sass. It may seem as though Sass requires a handful of traditional computer science knowledge to use, but the reality is that it doesn’t!
This quick guide will break down all the basic terminology and concepts you need to know before you get started with Sass. And we promise, all you’ll find here are simple definitions of must-know, easy-to-grasp terms and concepts (I’m only assuming you know the foundations of HTML & CSS) that will be a primer to your Sass deep-dive. We’ll even restrain ourselves from throwing around the oft used “Feelin’ sassy?” puns as we explore Sass and convince you to give it a go.

Greetings to all humans. If you’re not human, welcome anyway. This is my first post about the re-design process of my website. As a designer, I’ve always told people that it’s important for designers to understand a little bit of development. via Pocket
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve played 3 amazing mobile games on my iphone and ipad. Each has left an indelible imprint in my brain. The games are, simply put, surreal. Each game is visually stunning and features a haunting soundtrack (or sound effects) along with smart levels, each designed around a puzzle-adventure storyline. Forget your Candy Crushes and Angry Birds. These 3 games boast immersive experiences and celebrate design, without asking you to cough up more cash to unlock levels.
Conference season started out strong with SXSW edu + interactive right in my backyard and I’m looking forward to numerous other conferences and events this year.
Over the years I’ve pared down my “conference mobile office” to include only the most necessary tech essentials to keep myself streamlined and unencumbered, yet productive during these nerdfests/geekathons.
Today on the Skillcrush blog, I’m detailing the 5 gadgets I can’t live without lately. These will make you pwn any conference, I promise. # 5 is an absolute new OBSESSION.
