JB: As­sum­ing you’re al­ready fa­mil­iar with CSS, I per­son­ally rec­om­mend refac­tor­ing a cur­rent project. You can start out small, with mov­ing val­ues over to vari­ables and con­sol­i­dat­ing and doc­u­ment­ing them. Work your way up to mix­ins, then fur­ther into more ad­vanced con­cepts. It’s how I learned. But if you want to start from scratch, you can try your hand at making a UI li­brary and style guide – maybe for a side project. SassMeis­ter and CodePen are also great prac­tice spa­ces.

Mov­ing teams

What is the best way to move a team from SVN to Git with the min­i­mum im­pact? Gary Git­ton, Paris, Fr EJW: Git has bridg­ing com­mands that al­low you to work with an SVN repos­i­tory un­til you’re ready to make the switch. At­las­sian has a great tu­to­rial on mi­grat­ing from SVN to Git ( netm.ag/SVN276). Don’t fool your­self into think­ing it’s just a tech­ni­cal prob­lem though. The so­cial part of the move is usu­ally the hard­est. For this I rely on Kot­ter’s 8-Step Process for Lead­ing Change: netm.ag/steps-276.

Learn­ing space Sites like CodePen and SassMeis­ter are good prac­tice spa­ces for users learn­ing Sass
