Question:As far as I know – the name of the technology is SASS and it supports two file types:
BUT on one job interview for front-end web developer, the guy interviewing me said to me –
“There is an error in your CV,
you wrote that you have been working with SASS,
but that’s not correct, you made a mistake and probably meant to say – SCSS.
SASS and SCSS are very different and I don’t think that you ever used SASS
which is far more complicated”
I have experience with both file types,
I know the difference and yes they have a slightly different syntax
BUT what is the official name of the technology,
not the file types, the technology / skill you would list
more correctly on a CV, LinkedIn etc?
Answer:I’m sure the terms you are looking for are CSS-“superset” and CSS-“preprocessor”.
Also there is not a huge difference between SASS and SCSS. One uses a so called “indented syntax” which means that you don’t need curly braces and semi-colons.
So you really dodged a bullet when someone from a company says that “they are vastly different”.
If you have better answer, please add a comment about this, thank you!
