Adopt a Design System inside your Web Components with Constructable Stylesheets
As someone who makes stuff on the web, there are two things that I’ve been seeing quite a bit lately: Web Component discussion and CSS debates. I think that Web Components, or more specifically the Shadow DOM, is poised to solve some long-standing CSS problems. I’m a big fan of Web Components.

The State of the Web – Karolina Szczur – Medium
The Internet is growing exponentially, and so is the Web platform we create. Often though we fail to reflect on the greater picture of connectivity and contexts the audience of our work might find themselves in.

Beyond the Bubble: Real world performance – Building Calibre
