Web browsers have become so powerful that developers are now treating them as if they were a runtime environment as predictable as any other. But the truth is that we still need to deal with many unknown factors that torpedo our assumptions. The web is where Postel’s Law meets Murphy’s Law, so we can’t treat web development as if it were just another flavor of software. Instead we must work with the grain of the web.
In this free 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition aneventapart.com/event/orlando-special-edition-2016 , Jeremy Keith will share tried and tested (as well as new) approaches to building for the web that will result in experiences that are robust, flexible, and resilient.
Jeremy Keith (aneventapart.com/speakers/jeremy-keith) lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers, and most recently Resilient Web Design.
