Leveraging Maps for Scalable and Maintainable SASS

SASS is a relatively new language in the grand scheme of things. As many of us have transitioned from writing plain CSS to SASS, we still generally write our code the same way. Websites are becoming more complicated, and as such, we need more robust ways to write our CSS so that it is scalable and maintainable, even when the project grows.


In this session, I’ll discuss the idea of creating a framework in SASS to decouple the most complicated pieces of your code from the actual implementation. With this approach, you’ll still be able to use any CSS system, such as utility classes, BEM syntax or even just plain Drupal selectors. 


You may be interested in this session if:

  • You are new to SASS and would like to learn about what it’s capable of
  • You are experienced in SASS but feel like you still haven’t nailed down a system
  • You are a developer and are constantly frustrated that none of your programming skills carry over to SASS
