Replying to a tweet from @kriesse

When I’ve hired junior devs, I’ve noticed they have a working knowledge of what’s inside the curly braces (properties and values) and less experience of what’s outside the curly braces (selectors) regarding modularity, maintainability, etc.

…And that feels “right” to me. Like, it’s a reasonable expectation that they know the building blocks but haven’t yet acquired the experience to assemble those building blocks into a robust codebase. Kinda short-term to long-term thinking.

I really like @adactio’s idea here of a CSS learning journey from thinking about what’s “inside” the curly braces towards “outside”; from how to achieve individual effects and layouts towards how they fit into a greater overarching system.
