Made By Munsters will be presenting at Tulsa TechFest this year. The one-day conference, held in Tulsa, OK is a free charitable, non-profit event organized by Tulsa area volunteers. We will be giving a talk on Styled Components and how they are changing the way we think about Component Driven Design within Frontend Javascript Frameworks such as React and Vue.


Have you ever had issues with naming your CSS classes? Have you run into problems with one style overwriting another style? Are your developers having problems understanding your CSS and which classes to put where?

How about we take a step back and look at an easier and simpler way of handling our styles within web applications. In particular using Styled Components to abstract the need for a Developer to have to focus on styling at all. Instead, they can just put together the page using specific components that are pre-styled for them. Styled Components offer an easy to use API that anyone can get started with and provides a lightweight solution to programmatically adding and removing styles based on the state of your application. In this talk, we will cover the core concepts of getting started with Styled Components and provide pro's and con's to why you should switch over to using them in your React applications.

This workshop will be held on Friday, July 21st at 8:45 a.m. and will last for about an hour.

If you are interested in learning more about our talk or the conference, you can get all the details on Tulsa TechFest's website.

We hope to see you all there. If you have any questions, please reach out.
