State of CSS 2020 Results
We finally have the full results of the survey. While there are no ground-breaking changes compared to the ones from 2019, they do show that CSS has evolved a lot over the last decade. 18% more people adopted CSS Grid, about the same percentage would use Tailwind CSS again, and PostCSS and CSS Modules would be the technologies with the highest satisfaction and highest interest, respectively.
On top of that, this year, you can support this project by getting your State of CSS T-Shirt. Too bad they don't have one my size, though.
It's Advent Calendar Season
The designer and developer communities love ending the year with an advent calendar. I am also establishing my own tradition by compiling a list of these advent calendars so that you don't have to hunt for them out in the wild. Some big names took a break this year, but you can still find one for your favorite technology. Happy Tech Advent!

I don't have today any projects from individual developers. Instead, I want to highlight two corporate initiatives that caught my attention.
It is a campaign organized by Mozilla, where they asked people all over the world how did the Internet help them get over the many things that happened this year. They are publishing their favorite answers on the page linked below. Who knows, this might spark some inspiration for yourself as well.
The second project comes from Netlify, and it aims to help people adopt Jamstack. So why not put WordPress aside and use Jamstack for your next project website?
