He took us on a deep dive into the future of the web, web components, standards, and more.
We talked about (roughly in order):
Q & A:
- 52:24 My question is about “offline-first” and the (proposed?) “service workers” API. If I want to implement offline-first in my web apps, should I wait for service workers or just start learning the appcache stuff now?
- 59:23 I was wondering if, considering the native features of the browsers stay extending, jQuery UI still made sense? Do you use it, or should I avoid it? Also, do you ever use jQuery Mobile? What were your experiences?
- 24:31 E4H – Web Sherpa Summit – Web Standards Sherpa and Environments for Humans are joining forces to celebrate web design best practices and bid a fond farewell to Shirley the Goat. Some of our best Sherpa guides are presenting at this one day virtual conference and there will also be two open Q&A sessions where you can ask industry experts your pressing questions.
Bring all your Sherpas to your desktop or their own mobile device on April 2nd from 9AM to 4PM (CT). Get your tickets now!
48:58 Speedcurve – Speedcurve is the best way to monitor your front-end performance, meet your page load speed budget, beat your competition, and get continuous feedback on how your front-end code is affecting the performance of your website.
