Sass and LESS were both introduced in 2009. Since then, both meta-languages have exploded in popularity. Both Sass and LESS allow you to write elegant and reusable CSS in a third of the time it would normally take using standard flat CSS.
In this webinar I will walk through a handful of useful concepts and key differences between the languages. Drupal has several modules such case LESS and Sassy that will help you quickly get up and running using either project.

The famous Greek philosopher Aristotle stated, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.” Aristotle's dialogues have been used to teach an array of subjects from physics to poetry. Mediacurrent has heeded Aristotle's words and has recently stood up a new training division. As countless Drupal sites are launched daily across the web the demand for sound Drupal specific training has exploded. The increased number of Drupal books published over the last several years mirror the Drupal community’s desire for increased training.

This blog post is part of a series on Drupal distributions. The first post discussed the difference between distributions, installation profiles, and Features.
