How to use SVG and CSS to bring elements of storytelling into your designs, avoiding mistakes from the past (”Animate all the things!“), and tricks for cross-browser animation.

The importance of adapatibility over reusability, what makes a component, organising components, and how to apply the component model using tools such as React, Component and SUIT.

Connor Sears - Better Production Decisions with HTML & CSS

How to bring your design process closer to the code, how it helps to elevate design conversations, and experiences at Twitter and Github for using web-based tools (such as Ratchet, Framer, and [to be named]) to design native applications.

A mind-bending guide to building (and exploding) a rhombic dodecahedron and other polyhedra using only HTML, CSS transforms and a little bit of math.

Christopher Giffard - Test Your CSS with CSS

Using CSS as a declarative language for code quality analysis, uptime monitoring, and accessibility testing using Behaviour Assertion Sheets, and ideas and techniques for building your own declarative CSS-based tools.

Lea Verou - The Chroma Zone

An in-depth look at how colour works on screen, sub-pixels, the history of HTML and CSS colour (orange!), filters, blend modes, colour perception, currentColor, and up-coming CSS Level 4 features.

Simurai - Styling with Strings

Designing HTML components directly in the browser (without a preprocessor) using CSS properties such as currentColor, EMs, REMs, and flexbox.

Chris Eppstein - What makes Sass so Syntactically Awesome?

Reflections on the success of Sass, how it evolved, useful abstractions, the importance of allowing hand-crafted output, listening to community feedback, attention to error cases, features that don’t belong in Sass, and how you can contribute.
