Presentation, progressive enhancement, and lack of posts
Well, it looks like I haven’t written since April 17th; completely unacceptable. I wanted to post some slides of my recent presentation, and get in writing what I would like to do with this blog in the near future.
First, the presentation. I talked about progressive enhancement to the awesome cwcw group. Alright, confession time; this is the first presentation I’ve done professionally ever. I think the last time I did anything like this was in college 7ish years ago. I was confident going into it, but got pretty nervous talking in front of people. Oh well, I think the message was clear enough in spite of my nervousness. The slides may not be all that useful by themselves, but if there is interest, I can write more about what I talked on. For now, if you are intersted in it, please check out these links that I used for references:
- What does browser testing mean today? – The definitive progressive enhancement article, in my opinion. This is what got me into the idea in the first place.
- Understanding Progressive Enhancement – Great A List Apart article introducing the concept.
- CSS3 + Progressive Enhancement = Smart Design – One of my favorite blogs; Jeff Starrt goes into detail why progressive enhancement rocks and how to do it.
- Taking Advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 with Modernizr – Another excellent A List Apart article talking about an amazing tool, modernizr.
