Episode #7 - From games journalism to web development, Tailwind CSS and utility-first styling

Moving from journalism and marketing to front end development, utility-first CSS and the Tailwind framework

We’re also digging into the state of CSS, specifically Tailwind CSS and how a shift towards utility-driven styling can improve code maintainability and how it compares to methodologies such as BEM.
