Miriam speaking at Develop Denver, 2019

Dynamic CSS

with grids & custom properties

Don’t let the declarative syntax fool you – CSS is a powerful and dynamic programming language. It’s time to start moving style logic back into the language designed for it.

CSS has come a long way since the browser wars of the late 90s. What used to be a struggle, is now often a breeze (see box-shadow or border-radius). But the last 2 years have pushed CSS into entirely new territory: with DOM-aware variables and calculations that can drive your design, without all the invasive Javascript.

Some pretty mind-bendingly cool uses for CSS custom props from @TerribleMia – color, layout & animation all in css and only using JS to feed data.

Best CSS talk I’ve ever seen was from @TerribleMia today at #dvlpdnvr. Simply amazing.

Well that was awesome!!! “If you think CSS is a dumb language, you’re a dumb language – CSS IS AWESOME!” @TerribleMia thank you so much for the amazing talk!

Miriam has always been nothing but spot-on, professional, funny, while also being extremely knowledgeable, smart, polite and always on time.
