JavaScript and Web Standards

A session at Pittsburgh Web Design Day 2011

With technology moving so fast these days, often website makers overlook proper implementation of the behavior layer resulting in the loss of accessibility and ignored user needs. We will explore examples of how to support progressive enhancement without sacrificing functionality or alienating users.

I will talk about common JavaScript enhanced mistakes that prevent users from enjoying the site experience and look at some solutions on how to overcome those. Accessibility and usability should always be on the forefront of your code; this talk will cover take-away tips and general theory all while keeping those goals of best practices in mind.
