Dan’s Talk:
We’ve come a long way from laying web pages out using hand-written HTML tables and inline styles (raise your hand if you remember the Slice tool!). Join me as I walk us through a selection of the many ways to style React apps available to us here in 2020. We’ll go through different ways to use CSS files, style objects, and a sampling of different CSS-in-JS libraries. We’ll also cover trade-offs of different styling approaches, and different strategies for maintaining styles as our apps grow in size and complexity over time.
