Conquering The Uncanny Valley: Making Web Apps As Smooth As Native

A session at Velocity 2013

Wednesday 19th June, 2013

11:20am to 12:00pm (PST)

The Financial Times web app was one of the first, and is still one of the best, examples of how HTML5 can genuinely rival native technologies in performance and user experience. But combining multi-platform interoperability with a responsive user experience remains tough. This talk will cover many of the techniques developed at the FT to meet that challenge and nurture the web platform.
