Accessibility and Web Optimization with Chris Heilmann @Awwwards Conference

Article by Awwwards Team in The Best Articles - April 15


Fighting “inspirational obesity” was the theme of Chris Heilmann’s talk on day two of the Awwwards Conference Amsterdam in January 2016.

It’s about who performs best, is most accessible and is usable by all kinds of people - not the ones who are already bored of it.

Chris Heilmann, Developer Evangelist at Microsoft gave a no-frills talk on the issues we need to tackle to keep the web from becoming the slow lane of information transport. He shares his developer's checklist for 2016, talks about using service workers, optimising images, Open API Project Oxford’s emotion recognition, the importance of accessibility for all end users and basically reminds us of all the terrible things that we’re doing and not changing.
