Developing and maintaining CSS projects can become a tedious task full of repetition. Especially taking care of all the vendor prefixes necessary to make your shiny gradients, drop shadows and rounded corners work in all the many Browsers out there seems so hard that many developers simply give up and go all -webkit-.
As it turns out there's absolutely no reason for that. CSS preprocessors like SASS with Compass take the pain out of CSS development and bring the fun back in! Additionally tools like Livereload or CodeKit speed up development even further!
I can happily say that my web development work-flow has never been more fun than in the last year. Let me show you why :-)
