What you'll learn

  • Use mixins as functions
  • Create your functions and use them
  • Work with various data types
  • Use loops and conditional constructions


The SASS programming course is a logical continuation of the SASS: Fundamentals course. In addition to extending CSS and reusing styles, the preprocessors added constructs available in other programming languages: creating functions, using loops, and using conditional constructs. It has allowed developers to reduce the amount of code while adding functionality unavailable when writing CSS. In this course, you'll explore, step-by-step, the programming capabilities of the SASS preprocessor.
