Cascading Style Systems

A workshop on resilient & maintainable CSS

New CSS features are shipping at an unprecedented rate – cascade layers, container queries, the :has() selector, subgrid, nesting, and so much more. It’s a good time to step back and understand how these tools fit together in a declarative system – a resilient cascade of styles.

    Learn Grid Now, Container Queries Can Wait

    Take your time with new CSS, but don’t sleep on the essentials

    Several people have asked recently why container queries aren’t being used more broadly in production. But I think we underestimate the level of legacy browser support that most companies require to re-write a code-base.

    Can you un-mix a mixin?

    Rethinking the CSS mixin proposal after CSS Day

    The CSS Working Group has agreed to move forward with CSS-native mixins. But some recent mixin-like CSS tricks have an advantage that the official proposal doesn’t account for: they make it easy to remove a mixin after it’s already been mixed in.

OddBird became an extension of our team bringing UX, frontend, and backend brilliance to take MetaDeploy from an idea into a production application.

OddBird is a company I recommend without reservation. They are among the best in the world at front end, design systems, and w3c standards.

Other developers build exactly what you say, or they don’t understand, and develop the wrong thing. OddBird always thinks about the project goals. I defer to the team expertise now, which makes a better result.

Miriam is a fantastic speaker, with wonderful teaching skills, and highly praised by attendees of the conference and the workshop alike.

OddBird was the wise investment. We could have selected a cheaper avenue for this work – we would have paid for it manifold in the long run.

Since OddBird thinks about handoff from the beginning, maintenance has been super easy. For example, 100% unit test coverage was a given. I never had to ask for it.

Hi, I’m Miriam

I co-founded OddBird with my brothers in 2008 as a full-stack, boutique agency to provide custom web application design & development, along with refactors for integrated design systems, accessibility, performance, and long-term sustainability.

Since then OddBird has become an industry leader – from our work on Django, Sass, and Susy, to the CSS Working Group, Mozilla Developer Channel, Object Oriented UX, and in-depth conference talks on front-end architecture, workflow, component libraries, testing, and documentation.

We’d love to help you thoughtfully serve people with technology.
