Hello my name is St�phanie
My name is Stéphanie, for some reasons, some of you call me St�phanie, St?phanie, Stêphanie or Stéphanie. In a globalized diverse world where user travel and buy online, decisions about encoding, formats or characters you accept or refuse on your site and in your database will have more or less unpleasant consequences on human beings. I think it’s time you and me discuss encoding, diversity and user experience.

How I organize CSS in large projects using UFOCSS: Naming Convention
The main purpose of CSS naming conventions is to make the CSS selectors as informative and readable as possible, but defining a convention is not really a piece of cake. Naming is by far one the most debated activities in computer science. We can definitely benefit of a naming convention that helps us to write maintainable and scalable code. On the contrary, poorly written CSS can quickly drive us crazy and turn into a nightmare.

Naming variables requires empathy
"One of the reasons why naming variables is difficult is it requires a great deal of empathy. You're not naming things for the machine -- the machine doesn't care -- you're naming things to help your collaborators and future self" - @aprilwensel

Colombian Artist Ladyzunga Cyborg Changes Her Name to ABCDEFG HIJKLMN OPQRST UVWXYZ
A Colombian artist formerly known as Ladyzunga Cyborg successfully changed her name to ABCDEFG HIJKLMN OPQRST UVWXYZ after several rejections by the Colombian National Registry. In an interview with Las 2 Orillas, UVWXYZ spoke about how she still prefers to be called Ladyzunga and that the entire alphabet is a tool used to name all things, and thus would allow constant reinvention.

Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names
John Graham-Cumming wrote an article today complaining about how a computer system he was working with described his last name as having invalid characters.  It of course does not, because anything someone tells you is their name is — by definition — an appropriate identifier for them.  John was understandably vexed about this situation, and he has every right to be, because names are central to our identities, virtually by definition.
