TailwindCSS: Pros and cons of a “utility-first” CSS framework (gr)
– Angelos Chaidas, Senior Front-End Developer at Adzuna

The TailwindCSS website (cheekily) suggests that “Most CSS frameworks do too much” and offers a different approach to styling your HTML: Hundreds of “utility classes” that can be combined to create any layout or visual representation. Does this work? What are the benefits and the problems?

How to thumbnail and serve images at the age of serverless and edge (gr)
– Dimitris Zotos, Senior Front-End Engineer at Blueground

Media rich content has always been a challenge for software products, especially when it was user-generated. However, modern cloud solutions can lift the burden and make this somebody else’s problem :-) In this talk we will present the use case of AWS Lambda@Edge for on-demand image thumb-nailing, watermarking and content type switching.
