CSS is short for Cascading Style Sheets. But what exactly is that Cascade and how does it work? What are those Origins you might have heard of? How do you calculate Specificity? And where do those new Cascade Layers fit in? And oh, what exactly happens when you use
Last week I was a guest speaker at CSS Café, and dug into all that at with a brand new talk CSS: Understanding the Cascade.
You can find a recording of the talk embedded below:
Note that this was the first rendition of this talk. I’ve already reshuffled some slides and added a few extra ones to dig more into detail (especially on the why of layers).
It also took me some time to really get into it, as I was still recovering from COVID which I contracted just 10 days before. But all-in-all it’s not too shabby if I say so myself 😊
I’m still in the process of reorganizing my slides. Expect them soon(ish).
