LEA VEROU and I discuss the creative process behind her “CSS Secrets” series and the book of the same name she is writing for O’Reilly; loving JavaScript and math; her professional path, beginning with coding Visual Basic at age twelve; using CSS to lay out a print book about CSS; creating Open Source projects like Dabblet, Prism, and CSS3 Test; the case for progressive enhancement; earning a living doing your own thing; and leaving her job at the W3C (announced today).

All that and much more is now available for your listening pleasure in today’s Big Web Show Episode No. 94.
