In this talk, Mayank will teach the audience how to make sense of the cascade, clear up some common misconceptions (e.g. shadow DOM vs host context styles), and ultimately offer practical advice on how to make best use of the cascade.

They will show off some newer game-changing CSS features (like :where, cascade layers, and @scope) that enable us to write styles with confidence and intention. They may also sprinkle in some tips on how these new features interact with current workflows, including frameworks, build tools, browser devtools, and IDEs.
