Alexey Topolyanskiy

The talk will be about solving CSS issues in big projects by adopting Functional CSS methodology.

You will learn how to take best ideas from Functional Programming, and apply them to your CSS codebase. This means side-effects are limited or nonexistent, already created classes can't be overridden because they are immutable and they are trying to be as "pure" as it's possible to achieve in CSS.

This talk will be mostly useful for back-end and front-end developers working on large-scale projects, but I think everyone working with HTML and CSS on daily basis may be also interested in this.
