when I wrote the last summary right before the calm time between years, I thought the next edition will not feature a lot of articles. Since then, so many cool new notes and articles have been published that it’s about time to send this to you.

Personally, I’m working on two web projects at the moment with one being built from scratch with modern technologies and the other one being a quite tricky carry-all-components-over job from custom web components back to a theme library due to massive problems with the existing solution. In both projects the code I produce is nearly secondary and it’s more important to think about the issues in an abstract and unconventional ways, to make the right decisions for the software service, and maybe even more importantly, for the team. But on the other hand, I realized again that my CSS skills are the ones that usually make the difference in the teams where most frontend engineers are great at writing JavaScript/TypeScript. Therefore it fits well that this edition shares so many nice little tricks on CSS. Maybe it’s a good idea to read one of the CSS articles each day to get a bit up to date with modern CSS again.
