The Future of CSS
New CSS proposals like Container Queries, Cascade Layers and Scoped Styles are all aimed at improving the way we write responsive components and design systems.
Over the last decade Object-Oriented & Responsive design have become the norm – with tools like Flexbox, Grid, intrinsic sizing, and aspect-ratio giving us even more layout control. CSS has always been designed for a responsive web, but that goalpost can shift over time. Join Miriam to explore how these new features help us write more modern, encapsulated, and responsive CSS.
