CSS at the Intersection

Natalya Shelburne at dotCSS 2018

Natalya examines the patterns of thought we construct as we work in tech, the cognitive dissonance we experience when confronted with new technologies and ways of working, and how common reactions like saying "CSS is broken" can derail entire career trajectories.

Learning theory is paired with practical tips and examples of effective approaches to promote above-average learning and collaboration across disciplines, touching on creating design systems and how the tools we build should facilitate the way the designers and developers work together.
