Our guest in this episode is Cory LaViska, the founder of Shoelace — a component library that makes it easy to build performant, mobile-friendly websites using CSS grids and custom elements APIs.
Matt, Travis, and Cory discuss the partnership between Shoelace and Font Awesome, as well as their own experiences using different design systems and web components. Cory also touches on the benefits and challenges of modern web standards and the importance of keeping up with industry trends. Cory shares his favorite culinary icon, and busts Travis' chops for not having a Shoelace icon (yet.)
