Earlier today, I stumbled across a podcast interview with one of my early web design heroes, Dan Cederholm. You may know Dan as the founder of Dribbble, but it’s worth noting that he’s been on the cutting edge of CSS and web design since the early 2000s — Dribbble is just the latest in a long line of manifestations of his talents.
Anyway, the entire interview is worth listening to, but I was particularly interested in their conversation about Sass (starts around 56:20). I hadn’t realized Dan was using Sass, but I was excited to hear his thoughts on it, as it seems to me a lot of the old guard of CSS gurus have not taken to CSS preprocessors the way the younger up-and-comers have. As I was listening, I was surprised to hear my name was mentioned in reference to a recent post I wrote called How I’m Implementing Responsive Web Design. Turns out, they’d discussed my techniques for RWD with Sass in a previous episode with Chris Coyier (starts around 13:30), so I ended up listening to that, as well (The Industry seems like a great show…definitely check it out).More
