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!.
Oliver Turner
@oliverturner
@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

(let me know if any of that ^ needs clarification)

@codedsignal I'll do that homework then Oliver! Thanks.

Hey there! Guys (sublime text users) how you deal with next problem:

/* some CSS */
.first-selector {
font-weight: bold;
}

.another-selector { ... ;}

Actually
after typing bold; in example above in order to beginning typing
.another-selector I must "push" down or pageDown button on my keyboard
and also hit Enter - but it sucks! Maybe exist plugin (package) or
default trivial deal with it? ( after typing bold; for instance hit
binding Ctrl+Space(or something like this) and just begin typing
.another-selector . I know it was tough)) but I hope you understand me, any
suggestions?

@deniseyu I could do a tiny lightning talk tomorrow at Pivotal, but only if there are no talks in the pipeline, as my idea is rather silly to be honest.
Also, definitely going to recommend CodeSchool’s JS course to any JS beginners from now on: https://www.codeschool.com/courses/javascript-road-trip-part-1
While it’s is a paid subscription service, the first three levels of that course are free, and they provide a very gentle intro with nicely edited videos.

@fanaugen we don't have anyone lined up for tomorrow so it would be great if you could do a lightning talk
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
yea i like codeschool. maybe actually i'll email codeschool and ask if codebar can have an account
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
what's the topic?
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
@oliver sass being an acronym should always be capitalised? Also SCSS is more verbose.
Bleugh gutter mobile is awful. That was for @oliverturner
Alex Jahraus
@fanaugen
5 minutes is the upper boundary, right? Because three might end up being enough for me. The topic is x = x + 1
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
:thumbsup: good to leave a few mins for questions :)
Alex Jahraus
@fanaugen

@barisbalic According to Sass’ README, only the first letter in the technology’s name is a capital S https://github.com/sass/sass#sass--

I would always spell SCSS in all caps (like CSS) though

Baris Balic
@barisbalic
@fanaugen that's interesting, there is actually no reference to the original name on the site anymore. Perhaps it was passively renamed to Sass.
@fanaugen TIL
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
@fanaugen yes, 5 min is the time allocated for lightning talks
I'll add you to the schedule then :)
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
lightning talks! any takers?
Kate Whalen
@katebee
@deniseyu If you would like a talk on CVAD placement - medical devices and technology, I am happy to do one on the 15th, or any time after. :smile:
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
@deniseyu – a talk on open source from a 'stamps please' perspective? ;)
But seriously. I'd be interested in giving a talk on front-end frameworks such as angular, backbone, ember and react.js
Just an overview – not an in-depth thing to start off with. Or something that can be reused and refactored by others
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
@katebee that would be awesome! i don't think there's anything lined up. @kaichanvong I think that would be great as well, and you touchd on it already but it would be good to keep it high-level. maybe even start off with "what's a front-end framework?" would also be nice to include a few links to tutorials online, i know Codeschool has some videos on Angular and Ember
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
we do have a speaker for next week lined up, Sam
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
oh whoops- didn't scroll up far enough i guess :-P @katebee are you happy to do the week following?
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
also, @fanaugen would you want to do your talk on the 15th?
Alex was supposed to do a talk this week but he got hold up by shitty tube service :)
Kate Whalen
@katebee
@deniseyu sure! or the week after that! :smile:
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
#181 for now, until we can properly make a PR to the app, we can use this to keep track of lightning talks
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
nice
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
@katebee i put you in for the 22, @kaichanvong do you want to do the week after?
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
@deniseyu yes please

To become a coach, do you just change the button you click?
Also, can you specify what you're comfortable coaching or do you just turn up and see? :)
Denise Yu
@deniseyu
@oluoluoxenfree yep - when you're logged in, go to http://codebar.io/subscriptions . if you would like, you can make a note on your profile but mostly people just turn up and see what happens
