Why you should use Tailwind CSS

Posted in DNN, Design, Video on November 4, 2021

Last month I was invited to talk at SoFried DNN and I wanted to do a presentation on Tailwind CSS. I have to admit, my presentation was TERRIBLE. And I'm not exaggerating. I thought I had prepared well but I got really tripped up and I don't feel like I conveyed why Tailwind CSS is not only awesome but a real game changer. So instead of just living with that, I decided to make a couple of videos to show you how I would develop a couple of real components in a real design in Tailwind CSS.

Tailwind CSS is such a big topic in its own right that I thought I would just jump in to show you some of the basics. For these first videos, what I'm mostly focusing on is this:

  1. The speed at which I'm able to develop components and how that's possible (hint: no naming things, no switching to a CSS file, being able to freely reuse components)
  2. CSS file size and how Tailwind stays small
  3. How the framework helps make desigs even more polished

Why Use Tailwind: Part 1

Why Use Tailwind: Part 2

I hope you enjoyed these videos. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. These of course aren't exhaustive but I hope to do more of these videos in the future!
