The Back(side) of the Class

A session at CSS Day 2015

Friday 12th June, 2015

4:50pm to 5:40pm (AMT)

Have you ever been taught that “modularizing” CSS via an endless number of “reusable” object-like “classes” is the “proper” way to use CSS on “large-scale websites”, or have you taught others that these are “best practices”? Do you think there’s a difference between the term “large-scale websites” and “enterprise websites”? When I say “inheritance” and “specificity”, do you feel dirty?

If you answered yes to the above questions, then you, my friend, are going to absolutely hate this session.
