The web has come a long way. From the wild west days of proprietary technologies, inconsistent implementations and “write once, debug everywhere (and then write more)” we’ve come to a point where, well, we perhaps debug a tad less. Where do we go from here? What lessons have we learnt and what pitfalls must we avoid? How does the standards process work? How do we use these standards in a responsible fashion? What are the best practices for building web apps that work cross browser and are accessible to a broad audience? Join this talk to see what we must perhaps be cautious about so that we don’t end up with a broken web (well, any more broken that it is at any rate).
