Shipping Responsive Images to 25% of the Web

A session at php[tek] 2016

Thursday 26th May, 2016

10:30am to 11:30am (CST)

In this talk, I will provide an overview of how WordPress implemented responsive images in version 4.4 by automatically adding `srcset` attributes to images, which led to the global usage of `srcset` with `w` descriptors increasing 5x in a month. Attendees will also get a better understanding of the responsive image attributes `srcset` and `sizes`, which are supported by nearly every browser on the market, and learn why they are important.
