Hi Arthur,

Team Treehouse does have a few Sass courses. I would start with Sass Basics.

Now, you don't put Sass into your HTML document, as browsers cannot understand Sass. Only CSS can be understood by the browser, so Sass must be compiled to CSS before being added to the site files. This will all be covered in the course.

:) :dizzy:

I just watched the video where Guil talks about compiling css to sass. However, since he has workspaces, and I'm using my own editor, I don't get what he did when he typed in "sass style.scss style.css". I have a windows 10 pc.
