Let There Be Peace on CSS

A talk on a war that is dividing the CSS community, made in the name of the “separation of concerns”, and a peace that is starting to see the light, thanks to bright minds and passionate developers

At the beginning of this year I gave an “instant talk” at London CSS meetup, titled “Let There Be Peace on CSS”. This talk has then evolved and has been reprised a few months later at Design Exchange Nottingham, and presented at Front End London and State of The Browser.

It’s the result of months of considerations and pondering, combined with the drafting of a proposal for a call-for-paper, and an interview with Mark Dalgleish, about an ongoing “war of words” that I have noticed in our community for some time.

Below is the written version of the talk. Not exactly a transcript, more of a different format of a speech.
