Remember: April 9 is CSS Naked Day

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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!

Perhaps my most relevant book: CSS Optimization Basics (2018). Writing CSS is a craft. As craftspeople we strive to write high quality CSS. In CSS Optimization Basics I lay out some of the most important aspects of such CSS. (Also available in a bundle with Upgrade Your HTML and The Web Development Glossary.)
