Is CSS A Programming Language?

Function Stage

About the event

CSS isn’t really a programming language, is it? You can’t write algorithms in CSS…or can you? Think again! This talk will provide your talking points for any conversation about CSS and programming.


Lara Schenck

Lara Schenck is fascinated by the profound, yet subtle, overlap between programming, computer science fundamentals, and CSS. She spreads her enthusiasm for this topic at her day job as a Design Engineer for Penske Media Corporation, where she leads the design systems effort for big media publications powered by WordPress, and through speaking and community involvement. Lara writes about her work and life [on her blog](, illustrates [friendly monsters](, and inspires all of us who work with the web to seek a deeper understanding of the code we write and the tools we use.
