"To Be Announced"

A session at Smashing Conference 2012

Tuesday 18th September, 2012

6:00pm to 6:45pm (CET)

We live in an incredible fast paced time of web innovation. Almost weekly the working groups, browser vendors and software companies come out with new products and standard proposals and as web developers we get excited and want to use them all, right now! In this talk Chris Heilmann of Mozilla will look at some of the new ideas, proposals and experiments and shows how using them now is necessary but can also lead to annoyance in the near future. It is up to us to be future friendly but it shouldn't happen at the cost of our end users, developers who follow us or by blocking people out. Innovating also means learning from mistakes of the past, and right now we go down a few well traveled dangerous routes. So bring your safety goggles and let's experiment without losing an eye in the process.
