Link to Why do people complain so much about CSS?

"I think one of the things is that it’s actually really hard to get really good at CSS. I think HTML is funnily similar, too… It’s one of these things that everybody knows a bit of, but there’s actually not a huge number of people who invest that much time and effort into becoming real experts in it, the way that they do with JavaScript or other things."

Link to Creating valid and accessible links

The anchor element is often cited as the main building block of the World Wide Web. It is used to create a link to other pages, to anchors within the same page, to other resources (such as a PDF) or to an email address. How can we make sure they are accessible to everyone?

Start with valid HTML, good link text and when not to use a link.

Link to Securing the Web With Lets Encrypt - Changelog

Very interesting podcast with Josh Ash on how Let's Encrypt started and about what it takes to start a new Certificate Authority. Well worth the listen if you work on the web like me and you interact with SSL certificates and Let's Encrypt on a daily basis.
