Hey folks, I'm interested in BEM and just wondering if anyone has a good starting point resource in English?

bem.info should be good start point for learning about BEM methodology
also there are couple of articles in a wild about BEM - like this one http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2014/07/17/bem-methodology-for-small-projects/
and so on on http://bem.info/

Thanks @floatdrop, @veged this just what I need
Do any of you combine LESS with BEM? Are there any known issues and/or benefits?

@marxo we have support for LESS in bem-tools — you can write blocks styles with LESS

is baseBlock in i-bem is sugar for extending object prototype?

@floatdrop "semantically" yes — but under the hood we have some optimisations for our cases

we doesn't create new classes where we can just populate existing — it based on our BEM specific, where decls from different levels and decls for modifiers semantically update global class for block
