Course Overview

In this Sass Training class, students will learn how to get started using Sass (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets). Sass is a growing CSS extension language that is compatible with all versions of CSS. This course starts with a introduction of what Sass is along with a HTML and CSS background review. Then we dive right into getting students started using Sass.

CSS is not a prerequisite to this course. However, working with Sass is a more advanced way of using CSS with a website. Students looking to enhance their skills may want to consider our Introduction to CSS, Advanced CSS, or CSS3 for Web Developers courses after taking Sass.
