3 reasons I'm learning about CSS

  1. To get ideas for things that can be improved in XAML. Seeing some of the cool things that can be done in CSS makes me wish we had equivalents when working with XAML. (No more details here yet, but I have a list of ideas...😉) 
  2. So I'm better able to make the switch to "web developer". I know some people effortlessly switch between XAML and web technologies--but that's not me. I, of course, also know that it's possible to create websites using XAML. It's many years since I did any serious web development and I know a lot has changed in that time. I'm also aware that there are a lot more employment opportunities in "regular" web development and I can't live on my savings forever and XAML work is hard to come by. I'm hedging my bets by learning something that may help me now or in the future.
  3. So I can learn from smart people. Regardless of the technologies, there is often much that can be learned by watching smart people doing their work and solving problems. Watching how experts in another language think about and solve problems can be insightful and help me think about things in new ways too.
