Hey everyone!

We hope you'll join us for cold beers and code at our last meetup of the summer. Lesley Chard, UI/UX Designer from Bluedrop will be discussing CSS in JS!

"Developers fed up with the pitfalls of traditional CSS have been moving towards CSS in JS solutions. CSS in JS allows developers to write styles for their interface components directly in their Javascript files, and provides many benefits to performance and code maintainability.

We’ll look at JSS, one of a few emerging styled component libraries built to generate locally-scoped CSS. While JSS is only at its early days of being accepted in production, more front-end developers are choosing it as the champion CSS in JS solution.

We’ll learn the basics of JSS, how it works, and how we would apply it to a simple ReactJS project. We will also discuss setbacks and other adoption pains that could be encountered, especially when moving to a relatively new technology."
