Hi everyone: I was looking at learning SASS, after a conversation or two this week. But I wanted to know if the styles will work if I switch off Javascript. Apart from that are there any disadvantages of using SASS? Thanks!.

@assembly21 they will
(work that is)
Sass compiles to static CSS
You need to distinguish between SASS and Sass btw
There are 2 dialects of Sass: SASS and SCSS
SCSS is the one to learn: by far the more common syntax
And no, there is no downside... unless being too awesome is a downside.
(For the record I don't consider needing a build step to be much of a downside)
I guess there's one thing I'd note, which is that the real hipsters are beginning to get on the PostCSS bandwagon, but in terms of getting a job, IDE support, etc SCSS is a very solid bet
