Well, this wasn't the 2020 I had hoped for, but here we are. It seems strange to send out email newsletters about CSS, when all this is going on. However it looks like this is the new normal for a while, and life, work, and learning is going to continue.
I'm sad about the cancelations of my spring conferences and CSS Working Group meeting, but we all need to do what we can to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. I'm looking forward to meeting up with everyone again once we are out the other side. Until then I'll be thinking up more virtual ways to teach CSS, and trying to stay connected from my little office in Bristol.
On a personal note, I make a lot of my income from leading workshops and speaking at events. As these have been canceled I now have availability for other things! Things that I do including writing technical content, documentation, or editing the same. If you want to train your homeworking team I can run a CSS workshop or do a talk virtually. Very happy to chat and come up with something that works.
On to the articles this week, please do the social distancing thing, wash your hands, and look after each other.
