CSS tricks us into thinking it's simple, thanks to to being a declarative language with a very simple syntax, but for something that seems very simple at first glance, it's amazing how it manages to be a pain point for so many people. While seeming simple, we need to use it to control some very complex things, and unlike other languages, CSS lives in a very different, visual world, full of unknowns. In this talk, I'll be talking about how we can overcome many of the common pain points by changing our mindset in how we approach writing CSS, how we can work with the browser for simpler solutions, and I'll squeeze in some modern (yet well supported) CSS features that make life so much easier.


A bit of experience with CSS will go a long way!
