Learn how to improve quality and productivity by applying pragmatic principles to your CSS layer.

By using an interface like xCSS or Sass, you can remove duplication, eliminate unwanted relationships and build a CSS framework to enforce your requirements.

By writing code that writes the code, you'll output more for less. By removing duplication, you'll spend less time maintaining legacy code and improve quality. By defining a set of rules or framework, you'll promote extensibility and readability. By applying all these principles, you'll wonder why you wrote CSS the old way.
