  1. Thank you so much for this simple and very enlightening tutorial. I knew a basic of css and nothing of scss. Now I can compile the files and update my website easily.

  2. Under “Using & in nesting” you show 2 examples: one in CSS that the SCSS ultimately gets converted to, and one in SCSS. You then state about the SCSS that “you can achieve the same effect much more easily with SCSS by using the & character in nesting. However, both examples are 8 lines of code and not much different. What exactly was “much easier”?

    Though writing in SCSS can save you a lot of repetition in the id/class hierarchy, it is ultimately more complex since you are adding in variables, mixins, and functions that a developer needs to spend a lot of time hunting down and investigating to find out where and how to modify something. And all the SCSS is doing is writing vanilla CSS anyway — something grandpa already knows how to do without needing to learn a new language or use a CSS processor 🙂
