As the web advances and the size of stylesheets increase CSS has grown to become a bit more tedious and difficult to maintain. Writing vanilla CSS is a pain in the Sass (oh yes!, I just did that). Using a preprocessor can be a great tool in your toolbox to create modular CSS and help increase maintainability and reusability.
The Sass workshop is divided up into 6 sections:
• 5 minute quickstart
• Preprocessor intro & concepts
• Basic Sass
• Intermediate Sass
• Advanced Sass
• Modular CSS systems

In this three hour workshop, Arthur Kay will walk you through the process of building a hybrid mobile app using Sencha’s platform tools. You will start by building an HTML5 mobile application from scratch using Sencha Architect and Sencha Touch. Then you will learn how to style the app using SASS/Compass, and finally you will use the SDK Tools to produce a hybrid mobile app for iOS.

Organizing CSS is slowly getting more complex and as sites become larger and applications become more prominent we'll need a little bit of help. This presentation will cover CSS Preprocessors in all of their glory, talk about time saving techniques and stylesheet organization, and compare three main options – Sass, Less, and Stylus. Disclaimer: after this presentation you'll never write vanilla CSS again.
