Developers and CSS and have often been at odds with each other: developers complain that "CSS is not real programming", "…CSS sucks and appears to be counter-intuitive…" or even, "I am not a designer so I don't need to know about styling."

DEVELOPERS: YOU MAY NOT NEED TO CREATE COLOR SCHEMES OR STYLES BUT YOU DO NEED TO KNOW HOW TO IMPLEMENT DESIGN INTO YOUR WEB APP.

But it doesn't have to be painful.

Enter CSS preprocessing: SASS/SCSS. A preprocessor allows you to define variables and mixins, create mathematical and operation functions, and join multiple files so you can reuse bits of code over many projects. In this short Lesson, we'll be using an HTML template and learning the basics of styling using SASS/SCSS. Today, even more employers are looking for someone with experience in SASS and this lesson aims to equip you with the fundamental skills to increase your knowledge and add a vital skill to your resume.
