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 one move of the finger to completely unstyle—undress—a website. Which shows not only 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 to set up a reminder mailing list: email@example.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 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!
I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma. I love trying things, not only in web development, but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.
If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!
