Sass is incredible! I'm super excited that Treehouse is offering such an event - sass has made me more productive and my workflow easier to maintain. I'd live to to to Camp Sass and discover new opportunities about sass and meet Hampton and other lead Sass devs! This would certainly be incredible!

I haven't had a chance to play with Saas but I have read good things about it. I am heading forward to reach that point to get started with Saas. I have earned 486 points within 2 days of hard working!

#css {
  .withSass {
    writeMore: false;
    muchMoreFun: true;
    wasteTime: 0;
#me {
  .campSass {

The code can't work correctly, but I really wanna to go to this conference to learn more and more. Many thanks for the opportunity.

Wow, these forum contests are the best thing since sliced bread! Time to go learn Sass and get creative with my entry. :)

Sass is what Stephen Hay would call the "Zero Interface" to CSS - think of it in Sass and it's already done in CSS. I like Sass that much because it is so much fun and a time saver par excellence. Sass is creating real business value for every serious webworker.


There's a camp for Sass?!

%size {
  width: 75%;
  height: 100%;

.backpack {
  @each $item in shirt, pants, socks {
      .#{$item} {
        @extend %size;
        @each $color in red, green, blue {
        .#{$color} {
          background: $color;
  .shoes {
  /* I have very wide feet. Mom calls them my "snowshoes." Thanks, Mom. */
  @each $accessory in hipflask, greatjokes, businesscards {
    .#{$accessory} {
      object-fit: align-content;

Ok, I will be more than happy to go, but... I'm currently frozen somewhere in siberia. And here there are very few people who heard the word SASS. Will we have videos from the conf. ? So I can learn smth and talk with my teammates like a true UX ninja. Thanks!

Hope I get chosen to go! Here's my submission:


Team Tree House you rock for having contest giveaways!

Those workspaces are just for you, no one else can see them. Try Codepen.io

Here is my submission. Really hope I hear from you guys! Good luck everyone!


How has Sass changed my workflow

Ever since I was aware of Sass not too long before having a rundown of its features by Nick Pettite (back when Treehouse was known as ThinkVitamin), my whole approach towards creating maintainable and efficient css stylesheets.

Sass truly made CSS fun again to me, and more importantly helped me realize how hard it could be otherwise to work on a stylesheet with multiple people.

I also saw huge potential after Nick's example of the Blueprint Compass framework, that Sass and Compass can help towards much more specialized yet meaningful markup on html/haml documents.

Compass alone provided me the most memorable moments of styling styleheets I've ever had at this point in my life; the CSS Sprite helpers alone made it immediately a quintessential framework for me to use.

Overall, Compass will enable anyone who gives it a serious try the ability to write smarter stylesheets, as well as reusable code they can easily create frameworks to share amongst peers, teammates, and the overall community.

Why I'd like to go to CampSass

The Sass community is one of the best I've ever heard about, especially for a preprocessor.

Currently I'm in LA but in an area in LA that doesn't hold much value of the web development and web design skills I have, including my love for Sass. It would be great to travel to San Francisco and finally get to meet some of the best members of the Sass community.


All that said, here's my submission--using SassMeister of course, the go-to place to try out and have fun with Sass.

Note: I use Flexbox extensively to complete the submission; I'm expecting the submission be viewed on a browser that supports flex-flow and flex-wrap.

Here is my anti-entry! :) http://cdpn.io/jFKrv

Are people scheduled to be contacted by the end of today or after today? Just asking because SFO, as with most airports, can be finicky with prices if you wait too long to purchase a flight there...

I did; I'm super excited for Camp Sass! :)

Anybody get their followup about their ticket from Faye yet?

I did; Faye has been contacting people through email as promised. See you there. :)
