Why is sass removed from front-end track?

Not sure why, but one reason could be that Sass falls more into the design track. Yes, you'd use it on the front end. For me front-end developers should be more for basic CSS, JS and the many frameworks and HTML functionality (making the client side interface well with the server side).

Hi Marko,

Its still there, the basics are covered in the web design track, for the more advanced tutorials go to the library and you'll find them under css.
Sass is just a smarter way of writing css, so having it in the front end is where it belongs.

Hope this helps.
