If you work with CSS in JS, chances are you have come across Max Stoiber’s work. In the past year, he gave talks around the globe, contributed to a range of popular open source projects, and shared tons of his ideas in podcasts, interviews and on his blog.
For CSSconf EU, Max will give a brand new talk in which he introduces his latest project styled-components, which is an evolution of the CSS Modules concept his co-maintainer Glen Maddern introduced at the last CSSconf EU. We predict it will be one of the most heatedly discussed ideas of the upcoming conference.
The road to styled components: CSS in component-based systems
Building user interfaces on the web is hard, because the web, and thus CSS, was inherently made for documents. Because UIs fundamentally are not documents, we've seen a mindset shift towards building component-based system.
With that and a few more things in mind, Max along with Glen Maddern (co-creator of css-modules) sat down and started thinking about styling in this new era. They took the best of CSS and the Web to build a new way to style component-based systems. In this talk, Max will describe what they thought about and why they arrived where they did – <💅> styled-components.
