Episode Notes

This is a talk from “beyond tellerrand // Berlin 2019”. Natalya Shelbrune was speaking about “CSS at the Intersection” at the sixth #btconf in Berlin.

CSS at the Intersection

Throughout the talk I discuss the mental models we construct in tech, the cognitive dissonance we experience when confronted with new ideas, specifically about CSS.

We know CSS has a separate mental model because we keep hearing the same debate rage on: “Is CSS broken or awesome?” This talk is about enabling teams to communicate and accommodate these different mental models. I share examples of effective tools, and how they change the way designers and developers interact.
