    Hey Chris,

    Thanks for doing this AMA.

    As someone who uses Codepen & CSS-Tricks on a daily basis to test out snippets of code and to study existing front-end patterns, it suffices to say that I find both quite useful & resourceful.

    My questions:

    • With the wide array of front-end technologies, and its ever growing nature, what would you say is a good stepping stone beyond HTML, CSS and Javascript (along with basic knowledge libraries & frameworks) to get deeper into the world of front-end? • Which are the CSS preprocessor features would you like to see become part of the standard spec?

      1. Gettin' comfy with build tools and processes.
      2. Extends will be the most useful. Everybody bitches about them in preprocessors, but only because emulating them with selectors sucks. A native implementation would be huge. It's being worked on, which is wonderful.
