Advanced Sass Course Outdated?

I feel like the majority of the content in the Advanced Sass course is outdated. After every video I find myself going back to refactor code to the current documentation's standards. Most of the content from these videos has merely supplemental to the Modular CSS with Sass course anyways... Should I continue on or focus my efforts elsewhere?

Hey Gavin Broekema,

There have been lots of additions to Sass since the release of this course, but the course isn't exactly outdated. Most of the concepts are still being used by front end developers & designers.

Could you please post examples of sections where you refactor your code to the current documentation's standards? We're also in the process of refreshing Sass courses, so stay tuned! :)

Thanks! :)

With Sass 3.3 and newer, the list-maps definition require colons after each key. Otherwise sass throws an error.

$add-border: (
  position: all,
  size: 1px,
  pattern: solid,
  color: #999) !default;
