Building emails sucks. Poor CSS support, old school HTML, tables, various email clients and platforms, writing inline CSS, multi-part mime… the list goes on.

* Task runners
* Static site generators
* APIs
* Pattern libraries
* CSS preprocessors
* Media queries

We’ll take a look at the current state of email design, the problems we face as developers, and how to make things better using the likes of Sass, Grunt and other magic.
