  • 2:30 I am still trying to wrap me head around what defines a headless CMS. Can a headless CMS still have a view for entering data and be considered headless?
  • 7:30 I recently started learning Sass and I was wondering where the best place to put media queries is?
  • 12:07 When using pagination, where should the next and previous buttons point? Is the previous event (i.e. the older event) to the left or to the right?
  • 20:00 What are your thoughts in general of a large company moving into a domain that was previously filled by a bunch of smaller projects? i.e. Google building Material Components for the web.
  • 35:58 I like the idea of making CSS more reusable. My designer likes variety. How am I meant to turn such designs into modular CSS?
  • 47:00 What's the status on container/element queries? Combined with grid layout, this would be a pretty big game changer.
