Code Faster with Emmet, Sass, & Sublime Text

Did you know there are faster and easier ways to code? If you’re not using Emmet (coding shortcuts), Sass (a CSS preprocessor), or Sublime Text (a code editor), you should be! These tools can greatly speed up your coding with less typing. Every web developer needs to know these. Let us show you how to dramatically speed up your development.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn in the seminar:

  • What are Emmet, Sass, and Sublime Text? How do they work? Why should I use them? (It will become very obvious.)
  • Sass variables let you re-use CSS. Example: After using a color throughout your CSS, you only need to update one place to change the color throughout your CSS!
  • With Sublime Text and Emmet you can navigate files faster. From finding a specific CSS rule amoung dozens, to moving the cursor to the right place in your code, keystrokes let you navigate quicker!
  • Type a keystroke and 6 characters to turn a plain list like this:
    Chocolate
    Fruits
    Candy
    
    into this:
    <ul>
      <li>Chocolate</li>
      <li>Fruits</li>
      <li>Candy</li>
    </ul>
    
  • Make the following 290 characters by only typing 24 characters!
    <ul>
      <li class="item1"><a href=""></a></li>
      <li class="item2"><a href=""></a></li>
      <li class="item3"><a href=""></a></li>
      <li class="item4"><a href=""></a></li>
      <li class="item5"><a href=""></a></li>
      <li class="item6"><a href=""></a></li>
      <li class="item7"><a href=""></a></li>
    </ul>
    
  • Quickly change a tag by editing start and end tags simultaneously.
  • Place multiple cursors to edit multiple lines or attributes at the same time. This is phenomenal!
  • Wrap tags efficiently and beautifully (nicely indented).
  • Paste new code perfectly indented.
  • Even more awesomeness!

This seminar will focus on coding efficiency, assuming you understand HTML/CSS code. NOTE: We’ll teach the SCSS syntax of Sass.

Why Train With Noble?

26 Years of Experience

Noble Desktop has been teaching computer graphics and web development since 1991. In all those years we have perfected the craft of teaching. If students get hung up on any issue, we tweak the class to make it work better. Every instructor uses the same time-tested curriculum we have developed. Ask around: Noble Desktop has a stellar reputation for exceptional computer graphics training.


Our Teaching Method is Better

We don't ask you to simply "follow along," copying what the instructor does. Instead we ask you to focus 100% attention on the lesson at hand. Only after the lesson do you then put into practice what you have learned by working on a computer with our step-by-step workbooks. This "learn, then practice" method results in the student learning and retaining much more than traditional "follow along" classes.


We Wrote the Book Ourselves

Most of our classes include a custom training workbook written by our top instructors. Take it home with you: with step-by-step exercises and power-user keyboard shortcut guides, it’s like having a refresher course right on your desk. We wrote the book ourselves because we couldn't find any book that was good enough. Now our books are being used by other schools and training centers worldwide.


We Provide Computers, Mac or PC

Since when did training centers expect you to "bring a laptop"? Noble Desktop has always had classrooms full of computers, Mac and PC. Each computer is loaded with software and has a 19-inch monitor. The next time you are asked to "bring a laptop," ask why you aren't being provided a computer. Noble Desktop always has up-to-date equipment in our state-of-the-art classrooms.


Not Just Anyone Can Teach

All our instructors are working professionals who bring on-the-job experience to the classroom. But we don't just let anyone teach a course. How many experts do you know who can't teach? We've learned to audition and test our instructors. Only after they have been through our screening process will they be put in front of students. And they are required to use our time-tested curriculum, assuring a positive learning experience for all our students. Read our instructor bios.


Money-Back Guarantee

We’re the only school to offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. If you don’t absolutely LOVE your class, we’ll give you a full refund! Compare that to other "schools" that have a no-refund policy. Is that even legal? It certainly isn't right. At Noble we treat our students with respect and common sense.


We Are NY State-Licensed, and Adobe Authorized

When looking at a computer training school, check to see if they are NY State-licensed. Any school in New York should be licensed by law. Noble Desktop follows state-issued guidelines for curriculum development and teacher licensing. Adobe Authorized means our instructors have passed the rigorous Adobe Certification Exam, and that we follow Adobe's quality-control standards.


Our Students Love Us! 2100+ Testimonials and Counting

We offer our guarantee because we think we’re the best—but don’t take our word for it. Ask more than 2100 industry professionals who have enjoyed our classes and are putting what they learned to use on the job. Read their testimonials.
