Thursday 16th June, 2016

11:10am to 12:00pm (AMT)

Do you remember <layer>? If you do, you also remember Netscape 4, and probably not fondly. And if you remember Netscape 4 you also remember most of web history, as I do.

In this session PPK is going to give a broad, historical overview of where we were, where we are, where we're going to, and why.
