CSS for People Who Hate CSS Over my career as a designer & developer for the web, I've worked with some ridiculously intelligent developers. These are people who write databases for fun, people who can easily hash out the finer points of a complicated REST API and then implement it that day. These are people who are solving ridiculously challenging problems with beautiful algorithms. They're writing in seriously hardcore languages like C.
