With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

A session at Fronteers 2014 Jam Session

Wednesday 8th October, 2014

11:11pm to 11:21pm (AMT)

CSS has its limitations, and we try to work around them with pre-processors like Sass. With such a powerful tool comes great responsibility, which is often neglected. This leads to needlessly complex code, bad practices and developer unhappiness. Let’s investigate how to use Sass in real world situations, and maybe even more importantly: how not to.
This talk proposal may surprise some, since I'm a Sass evangelist. In working with Sass for over 7 years I've seen a lot of good things happen, but also a lot of bad things that make others resistant of using a CSS pre-processor at all. Let's stop doing that :-)
