What’s a good starter project for someone who wants to learn Sass?

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.
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.
