Feb 20 - Oct 21, 2013 · London, United Kingdom
London Web Standards October 21  - Modern progressive enhancement +  Online identity (#lwsprogid) General release tickets are available from this page on Friday, 11th October at 1p.m.   "Modern Progressive Enhancement" by Stuart Cox 10 years on from its conception, the technique of Progressive Enhancement is still touted by some as a best-practice for making a web site or app accessible to the largest possible audience. But its meaning – and application – has become misunderstood, contorted and diluted over the years. I want to explain why I think it's still the best way to achieve a broad user reach, now and in the future. Some say it doesn't apply to heavily JavaScript-dependent web apps, but I'm here to prove them wrong. I'll explain how the rules can evolve to solve modern multi-browser/multi-device/multi-user problems and future-proof your apps. I'll also present a structured workflow for applying Progressive Enhancement in real-world projects. About Stuart, @stucoxmedia Stu is a senior developer at Potato ( and a member of the Modernizr ( core team. He is enamoured with new tech and likes to theorise about web design and development practices, while trying to balance purism with a healthy dose of pragmatism.   "Online identity: getting to know your users" by Cristiano Betta Cristiano's talk will cover: The state of the authentication dance Why online identity matters The case for named vs unnamed identity Online identity in the e-commerce space About Cristiano, Cristianobetta Cristiano is a developer evangelist at PayPal, event organiser at Geeks of London and a board certified geek.
