Evolution of CSS in ReactJS

In May 2013 Facebook open-sourced ReactJS and the javascript world has never been the same. The component-based declarative model of React + Redux is revolutionary in terms of simplicity, but we still want a sophisticated user interface. Unfortunately CSS was designed as a 'global scope' language, which can greatly work against the modular, 'make it do only one thing well' construct of React. In November 2015, just over a year ago, one slide presented at a Javascript conference was blogged, tweeted, discussed, and debated for months afterward. During this tech talk, we take a close look at the debate, its winning arguments, and how the progress made is helping everyone building react apps win.
