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.
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.
