IMG_2459 Sass discussion at All Girl Hack Night
Una Kravets (left) gave an introductory talk to the CSS framework Sass at All Girl Hack Night. For me as a backend developer, this was my first introduction to this very popular front-end framework. It turns out Sass doesn't really eliminate the need to understand CSS very well, so if you didn't know how to make two <code><div/><code>s aligned side-by-side, Sass won't magically do it for you. Mostly, it can automate your CSS so that you won't have to write out miles and miles of CSS code by hand, but instead use some programming constructs to generate it.
Una also hinted at how to create some geometric figures, such as triangles, hexagons, and even more complex shapes, with CSS alone. It's a play of colors, backgrounds, borders, thicknesses, visibility and invisibility. Pure magic!
