Anthony Colangelo is a developer working at Happy Cog in Philadelphia. He’s one of those hybrid front- and back-end developers who loves everything from responsive design to object-oriented programming. You can find him on Twitter talking about development (and probably space, too).

As a developer, a large amount of my time is spent reading documentation. An even larger amount of time is spent finding said documentation. Or it was, until Dash entered my life.
There are some great changes coming in Sass 3.3, one of which should have developers extremely excited: sourcemaps. Put plainly, sourcemaps are a way to map compiled code back to its native state. That may sound kind of odd, but sourcemaps will make every Sass-loving developer’s life a little bit better.
Well-designed code is much easier to maintain, optimize, and extend, making for more efficient developers. Three high-level, language-agnostic aspects of code design are key to achieving this nirvana: system architecture, maintainability, and reusability. All three may be attained via the module pattern, whose extensible structure lends itself to a solid system architecture and a maintainable codebase. Anthony Colangelo shows how to craft our code into well-organized components that can be reused in projects to come.
