SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets)

Aaron Smith - Common Media
SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets) is a CSS preprocessor which takes SASS code - resembling nested CSS, variables, and mixins (or "chunks" of style rules) and generates plain old CSS. SASS is incredibly easy to learn and use, and improves the readability and maintainability of your stylesheets by roughly one million percent. You can start using it with any project, fresh or legacy.

I'm working on a Jenkins setup, so (fingers crossed) I'll have something nice working by then. And I should have all the config in Chef Recipe format, so I can share!

SASS/LESS may be a good topic, which may be a good frontend and/or experienced beginner subject. I can volunteer to do SASS, would anyone want to chime in on LESS?
