CSS at an Intersection

Thom Obarski

CSS exists at an intersection between mental models. How do we know? Because we keep hearing the same debate rage on: “Is CSS broken or awesome?”

From the Boston CSS Meetup, Natalya Shelburne discusses building tools for collaboration - enabling teams to communicate by creating interfaces to accommodate different mental models. She shares examples of effective tools focusing on creating design systems and how they transform the way the designers and developers interact.

Natalya discusses the mental models we construct in tech, the cognitive dissonance we experience when confronted with new ideas, and the effect behaviors like saying “CSS is broken” can have on career trajectories.
