Resilience: Building a Robust Web That Lasts by Jeremy Keith—An Event Apart video
Web browsers have become so powerful that developers are now treating them as if they were a runtime environment as predictable as any other. But the truth is that we still need to deal with many unknown factors that can torpedo our assumptions. The web is where Postel’s Law meets Murphy’s Law, so we can’t treat web development as if it were just another flavor of software. Instead, we must work with the grain of the web.
In this free 60-minute video, captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, Jeremy Keith shares tried and tested (as well as new) approaches to web building that result in experiences which are robust, flexible, and resilient.
Jeremy lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers 2nd Edition, and, most recently, Resilient Web Design.
