Remember: April 9 is CSS Naked Day

This and many other posts are also available as a pretty, well-behaved ebook: On Web Development.

CSS Naked Day is coming up!

Why the excitement? Because CSS Naked Day is a magnificent custom; the magnificent custom to, on one day of the year, strip websites of all styling. It’s awesome because when we, web developers, have done our job, it takes pretty much just one move of the finger to completely unstyle—undress—a website. Which all shows not just the power of CSS, but also of HTML, and of Separation of Concerns.

(Dustin Diaz, the inventor of CSS Naked Day, has explained a bit more on the original CSS Naked Day site, and so has Taylor Satula then on the last CSS Naked Day site.)

To make sure this event doesn’t get forgotten I’ve decided to post this note here, but also set up a reminder mailing list: css-naked-day@googlegroups.com. Please join.

It’s a reminder list for I just do a little countdown and point to whoever is organizing the main event (I’m not sure Taylor is doing it again this year, after Dustin had handed over). I’ll just do enough to help keep the awesomeness alive. Forever—for I’ve always loved the idea behind CSS Naked Day.

Please join in, on CSS Naked Day 2015—and the Naked Days of the future!

Tweet this? (If it changed your life, you delight me with a coffee.)
