In this workshop, Aaron Gustafson will explain the ins and outs of crafting rich Web experiences that adapt to the capabilities and peculiarities of our customers and their devices, while maintaining your sanity in the process. You’ll leave with:

  • An understanding of the challenges (and possibilities) presented by the wide range of browsers and devices being used to access the web
  • A fresh perspective on interface design, grounded in the progressive enhancement philosophy
  • Ideas around how to tailor experiences based on device capabilities;
  • Solid strategies for determining how common UI components can be re-imagined in an adaptive fashion
  • A practical knowledge of how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript can be deployed in the service of adaptive user interfaces
