Starting with Tailwind for devs with minimal CSS knowledge

4 hours remote workshop October 22 2021

Times in Europe/Amsterdam
October 22, 13:00-17:00

Get started with Tailwind CSS, the trending utility-first framework, that helps anyone create good looking websites with minimal CSS knowledge.

Tailwind CSS helps you rapidly build modern websites without ever leaving your HTML. It's a utility-first framework with thousands of class names that can be composed to build any design directly in your markup.

We will jump right into working with framework to get a first hand experience. Then talk about why you should choose this as your framework and discuss some common misconceptions and fears. Along the way, we will cover the following points:

  • Utility first concept
  • Build some simple components in the playground
  • Installing and setting up the latest version
  • Understanding "Just-in-time" compiler
  • Developing and Optimizing for production
  • Responsiveness
  • 'Layer' and 'Apply' Directives
  • Customizing Tailwind CSS
  • Creating dark mode pages
  • CSS flex and grid utilities

By the end of the workshop you will be able to independently set up Tailwind CSS in a new or existing project and work your way through building great looking web pages.
