I am currently in Australia, attending Web Directions Summit 2022. At the conference, I gave a talk on CSS Architecture.
Things have been going hard for CSS the past year, with a ton of stuff (soon) landing across browsers.
In this talk we take a look at some of these new and future additions to CSS: @layer, @scope, the :has() selector, nesting. Thanks to these features we can architect cleaner, clearer, and more maintainable CSS.
The slides of my talk are up on slidr.io and also embedded below:
Including my passages at virtual editions – Web Directions Global Scope in 2021 and Web Directions Hover earlier this year – this is my third appearance at Web Directions. I would like to thank the organisers John, Jane, and Rosemary for inviting me to speak at their event again.
It feels good to talk to real audiences and have conversations with real people again. Finally being able to meet some of my twitter friends IRL is simply great. Being back in Australia – 13 years after I first visited – is the extra cherry on top.
Hopefully you all had fun attending my talk — I know I had making it (and whilst bringing it forward) — and perhaps you even learned something from it along the way 🙂
💁♂️ If you are a conference or meetup organiser, don't hesitate to contact me to come speak at your event.
