    • 7. What are Preprocessors? In computer science, a preprocessor is a program that processes its input data to produce output that is used as input to another program. The output is said to be a preprocessed formof the input data, which is often used by some subsequent programs like compilers. The amount and kind of processing done depends on the nature of the preprocessor; some preprocessors are only capable of performing relatively simple textual substitutions and macro expansions, while others have the power of full-fledged programming languages.
    • 8. Preprocessors for the Web
    • 9. Preprocessors for the WebFor the web, the term usually means a languagethat can be combined with a trans-compiler to output a canonical “web language,” like JavaScript or CSS.
    • 10. Preprocessors for the WebFor the web, the term usually means a languagethat can be combined with a trans-compiler to output a canonical “web language,” like JavaScript or CSS. More a dialect, less a language.

    • 41. Common Arguments I know CSS/JavaScript why do I need to learn Sass/CoffeeScript?
    • 42. Common Arguments I know CSS/JavaScript why do I need to learn Sass/CoffeeScript?Compiler? I don’t need no stinking compiler!!
    • 43. Common Arguments I know CSS/JavaScript why do I need to learn Sass/CoffeeScript?Compiler? I don’t need no stinking compiler!! Large learning curve
    • 44. Common Arguments I know CSS/JavaScript why do I need to learn Sass/CoffeeScript?Compiler? I don’t need no stinking compiler!! Large learning curve Convince me!!
    • 45. Why do we have preprocessors?• Fill a void or short-coming• Streamline development• Ease of use
    • 46. How to end the argument• Don’t be afraid to walk away• Give them something to think about• In regards to pre-processors, history is on the pre-processor side • CSS4 will have variables • JavaScript Next (6.0) will have arrow functions
