Some of the Top Minds in the World of CSS and why you should be following their Work

by Tom Kenny (@tkenny)

When I started learning CSS, I did some research to find out who were the best people at the time sharing their knowledge online. I found that this was the best way of learning CSS by myself. Of course, I wasn’t learning CSS by myself, I recruited the best teachers available.


Still to this day I follow the top CSS’ers in the business to keep up with what’s hot and now with the rise of Twitter, you can easily keep up to date with the best people in the world of CSS.
