Friday 5: 5 Scars from Sass

Happy Friday, everybody! This episode we talk to Theme Manager Zack Hawkins about some of his pain points of using the Sass preprocessor. It's like therapy, but without the couch.

Things that keep Zack up at night include:

  1. Naming Color Variables
  2. Third Party Libraries
  3. Too Many Mixins
  4. Using Extends
  5. Dynamic Selectors
  6. Clowns (Actually that's me)

Have a topic that you'd like to learn more about? Feel free to email us at with any suggestions and stay tuned for the next episode. Have a great weekend!
