GeneralThe *One* Skill You Are Lacking Most In PinprotectorAspDotNetDev17-Jun-13 14:40 
I was just thinking about the one skill I am not very good at that I wish I was better at: CSS (styling webpages). I get along just fine without knowing it too well, but if you were to ask me to style a simple website menu, it'd probably take me several hours or days, while it would probably take some of my web designer coworkers an hour or less.
 
There are tons of skills I want to be better at (pretty much everything, aside from certain skills discussed in the movie Clerks), but given my job of web developer, CSS is the one I'm most lacking in. Yet, I still don't learn it better, as I'm always chasing something else (e.g., Azure development). If I was a master of CSS, though, I'd basically have no limits to the types of websites I could build, as I am already so strong in the other areas of web development. I'm thinking maybe it's time I allocate a little time to develop this long neglected skill.
 
What is your one skill that you wish you hadn't let get away?
