I've been using Sass for a while now, but this course taught me a few things I didn't know. Great refresher!

For somebody unfamiliar with Sass this was a marvelous learning experience. The lessons and tutorials were by and large understandable and I was able to master many of the challenges without taking a peek at the hints section. When it came to applying functions in lesson 5 I had the most trouble with, as if the content somehow became too abstract for someone like me looking for to understand the relationship between what is written in the code vs how the outcome would look like. But then again I am not a function person overall: this may not be something to be generalized. For someone like me who took his first steps in Basic (literally) programming using the Commodore Vic-20, the hardest step to overcome has always been the math part. By this I don't really mean adding, subtracting etc. but more like the unfortunate overall ethos that coding is somehow about math.

For someone like me who took his first steps in Basic (literally) programming using the Commodore Vic-20, the hardest step to overcome has always been the math part. By this I don't really mean adding, subtracting etc. but more like the unfortunate overall ethos that coding is somehow about math. To me it has always been about practicality, about getting some result, whether it is a small working app or a functional website - something beyond math. I am a person who does not knit for knitting, I do it because I want to modify the jersey formula (actually I don't knit at all, not a good example really). Thus the easiest lessons for me to understand are always those where this relationship between the code and the result is well emphasized (i.e. the color examples in color-math lessons). And I admit it is truly a step forward to be able to mess with colors without resorting to an external source like Photoshop when needed. As mentioned earlier, my goal with these courses is to learn to understand how code works so that I am able to modify it. The creators of original code masterpieces already exist, my aim is to learn to exploit their ideas and skills for my own purposes. It is like applying VST instruments and sample libraries in composing: by using the talent of others I am able to come up with something that is playing in my head, therefore further extending the sum beyond the value of its parts. All in all, this was a fine learning experience. I am definitely coming back for the part II sometime soon.

This course was great! Gave me a lot of insight into Sass and I feel ready to go out and start using it way more now. The challenges were fun and really helped solidify what I learned through the videos.

Once you switch to SASS there's no going back. This is a great breakdown of what SASS is and how to assemble SASS. It would be great to see a course with some higher level SASS challenges or possibly one that pairs with a HAML course.

I really enjoyed this course - I felt like it was just enough information, and I always understood what each challenge was asking for (in the others I've completed there were a few challenges that until I used all the hints it wasn't entirely clear what was being presented as the challenge). And most importantly, it helped me get up to speed on sass really quickly, after attending it I was able to complete a real world conversion from css to sass in just a couple of hours. Well, it's not totally done, but you know it's never really "done" ;-)

It was a great refresher, I learnt quite a few new tools that I think I will end up using daily - the colour stuff is interesting and will be fun to play with.

Good: - The total of the video lengths are good, teaching good amount of materials within a good amount of time. Comments & Thought: - If there is a cheat sheet, that will be great, just like the Functional HTML5 & CSS3 course. I find looking up information in the slide is not easy as it is mainly for presentation. (Of course, arguably this should be the student job to take note on the course). - The challenges are too artificial, but it may probably be as good as any online courses could get. It is really another matter when you have to apply the knowledge in creating a website with Sass.

So at first, I was skeptical with using a preprocessor, but now the organization I get in my CSS files makes me feel like I've been doing CSS for years. Thanks CodeSchool for such a great course.

So I would consider myself pretty familiar with Saas. I've been using it personally and on client projects now for a couple months along with Compass. This course was great though. I didn't skip any of the videos and I thought the lessons were a good review and tought me some of the more advanced things I had yet to use. Thanks for the great course, and teaching me how to properly spell Sass.

Excellent training videos! I had already learned the basics of sass on my own but this is just what I needed to learn all Sass has to offer and to fill in a few ( minor, really :P ) knowledge gaps. All in less than a few hours... If I were not so modest I would now call myself an expert :D Thanks!

The material presented was done so in a way that really helped me understand what was going on with Sass. I normally don't catch on very quickly, but was able to understand how things worked almost from the start!

If I knew anything about Sass to start with, the way the levels went would have been ok, but I knew nothing. I got the beginning part fine, but the end was way over my head and could have used more explanation. Or, better yet, divide this into Level 1 and Level 2. Provide more working examples (or exercises) - maybe a button at bottom someone could hit labelled "Not Quite Sure?" or something, which would go on to more practice with same theory but different scenarios/numbers. These videos are great, and you guys know what you're talking about. Just don't take it for granted that everyone else does, too. Practice may not make perfect, but it gets you further down the road, anyway. So, in any case, thank you!

Thanks for such another great course ! I feel ready to go for preprocessing with no fear of losing time setting things up or messing around. Charles Now I'm using twitter bootstrap and have been able to customize wordpress Roots theme (https://github.com/retlehs/roots) with sass instead of Less. Also, it was the opportunity to install scout app (for pc) and live reload. Even if the learning curve is steep for me, the overall is improving my workflow so much everyday and it definitely worth it. Thanks again.

The course was informative and I learned some useful things about Sass I didn't know before. I had used Less for a while but decided to make the switch as I ventured into Rails, and was happy to discover that Sass has some really useful functionality that Less doesn't, and it was explained pretty clearly in the course. I thought the course was a bit slow-paced but not too bad overall. But that intro music…I assume that's a constant across all your courses and I'll just have to get over it.

But a bit overkill with the respond-to replacement for media queries towards the end, more complex than using regular media queries...

So i think that simply css is one think, that can use developer. Without Scss may run few projects, that no need to change css into some like Scss. 1 construction that simply and works no needs to change in other constructions that "works" and "simply". Couse is made very well to understanding, but in some tasks is hard to understanding what you mean, what heed to complete section.

Awesome course! Assembling Sass unlocked some missing links that I can put to use immediately in my Sass workflow. Particularly neat were the lessons on Color Functions and Responsive. I'm looking forward to part two of the course.

As usual, the quality of the lessons are extremely high and the challenges are thoughtfully put together to really showcase the power of the Sass language. If you've taken some of the other design courses on Codeschool, you may be a little surprised to find that this one is somewhat more challenging. Sass is a lot more involved than regular CSS, and there's definitely a lot more programming concepts in here than you may be used to, particularly if you haven't written lots & lots of code. If you stick with it to the end, you'll really see how powerful and useful this language really is, and how it will completely change the way you write CSS (or Sass rather). The flexibility is mind-bending, but it turns out to be a surprisingly approachable language if you start small and work your way up. Oh, and "Your HTML is afraid of your CSS" in the jingle video is about the best thing I've ever seen.

As usual, a great intro to the topic. I've been using Sass, but I picked up on some things that I will definitely use but never touched or paid attention to. Thanks!
