Planes, Trains, and CSS Components

Planes, Trains, and CSS Components

The way we’re meant to be writing CSS appears to be in constant flux! What’s the safest route? Do we go for just writing vanilla CSS - is this the simplest and thus the safest? What about pre-processors like Sass or LESS? Or, do we look for more adventure with off-road vehicles like JavaScript or Web Components?

Join me as I take you on a journey through these different techniques for creating components. We’ll tackle all the bumps in the road head-on and fly straight into the eye of the storm, as we loop and swerve around development opinions.

The best thing about this journey, is we’ll see what it takes to engineer a component system for a large organisation. Using the best techniques available to us, both old and new. Ensuring styles are reusable, transferable, and easy to use across a variety of teams and products.
