Why should JavaScript developers learn CSS?

My JS Jabber cohost Aimee Knight recently jumped on the Microsoft Developer YouTube channel to talk CSS.

Aimee does an awesome job explaining some of the nuances of CSS and how it works in simple, plain language. I in particular loved her answer to why JavaScript developers should bother learning CSS at all.

tl;dr: it’s often both easier to implement and more performant than using JS for a lot of things.
