Rethinking CSS: Go Functional for Scaling, Performance & Simplicity
We can be our own worst enemies when it comes to creating CSS architectures. Functional CSS is a simple approach to creating and following consistent design patterns that lead to performant web applications at scale. If you do it right, the older a project gets, the less CSS you write. The only catch is that you may have to change the way you think.
We will look at real world applications of this technique, and show how you can apply it, from prototypes to large scale mature web applications.
