DIBI is all about combining design and technology, and if you’re too heavily weighted on one side, you’re missing out on creative possibilities. In this entertaining and down to earth presentation, Seb will show the best examples where creativity and code collide, and prove that it’s not that hard to extend your skills outside your comfort zone.
The modern web developer faces a moral choice when creating sites and apps. The angel on your shoulder tells you to use standards and respect accessibility across users of AT, older browsers, mobile, etc. The devil on your other shoulder meanwhile tells you to use all the shiny, satisfy your ego, and leave user agents over two weeks old in the dust.
Chris and Bruce will walk you through the dilemma, looking at the perils of embracing the serpent and presenting solutions that will allow you to achieve a satisfactory compromise. We know the devil has all the good albums, and we want to rock out as much as you do! But not at the expense of the Web’s greatest strengths
