Saving the web by doing as little as possible

A session at Over the Air 2013

Friday 27th September, 2013

5:00pm to 6:00pm (GMT)

The hack- and detail-heavy way we're building the web for all those devices right now won't scale—it already isn't. The less-is-more vision of the future web champions simplicity and elegance: putting commonality first, approaching differentiation as part of our progressive enhancement, and advocating for consistency in the creation and application of web standards. Can we pull it off?
