Event description

Description

To support continued skill development, portfolio project enhancements, and networking for the greater Seattle development community, we host a weekly Programming Night at Code Fellows in collaboration with Seattle JS Hacker & She's Coding. Through this initiative, we provide tech talks every other week and have mentors on hand weekly to provide job search advice or offer technical guidance on projects.

Tech Talk: Fun with SCSS!

Join our Principal Instructor, Brian Nations, as he introduces how to take your CSS to the next level through the use of SCSS. During this workshop, Brian will discuss the basics of integrating SCSS into your project, along with a couple of fun little live coding demos to get you excited!
