A terrific talk by Adrian Holovaty. I really hope front-end developers talk its message to heart.
A thoroughly entertaining talk by Andy looking at the past, present, and future of robots, AI, and automation.
A great new seven-part series of short videos from Jen on writing resilient CSS—really understanding the error-handling model of CSS and how you can use that to use the latest and greatest features and still have your site work in non-supporting browsers.
A good hands-on introduction to service workers from Mariko.
I had a chat with some people from Name.com while I was in Denver for An Event Apart. Here’s a few minutes of me rambling on about web development and the indie web.
This is the rarely-seen hour-long version of my Resilience talk. It’s the director’s cut, if you will, featuring an Arthur C. Clarke sub-plot that goes from the telegraph to the World Wide Web to the space elevator.
This looks like a rather good documentary about the best band in the world.
Here’s the talk I gave at Mozilla’s View Source event. I really enjoyed talking about the indie web, both from the big-picture view and the nitty gritty.
In these times of centralised services like Facebook, Twitter, and Medium, having your own website is downright disruptive. If you care about the longevity of your online presence, independent publishing is the way to go. But how can you get all the benefits of those third-party services while still owning your own data? By using the building blocks of the Indie Web, that’s how!
Boxman’s talk about complexity, reasoning, philosophy, and design is soooo good!
I think this is the best delivery of this talk I’ve ever given. It was something about being in that wonderful venue.
I got quite worked up around the the 32 minute mark.
At the 14 minute mark I had to deal with an obstreperous member of the audience. He wasn’t heckling exactly …he just had a very bad experience with web components, and I think my talk was triggering for him.
I had the honour of being invited along to kick off the first leg of Mozilla’s Developer Roadshow in Singapore.
Here’s the closing keynote I gave at Frontend Conference in Zurich a couple of weeks back.
Here’s Amber’s great talk from the great Material conference last month in Iceland.
Amber Wilson worked in the field of Psychology for many years and is now a budding Web developer at a design agency in Brighton. New to Web development, she is continually eager to improve her skills.
(The silhouettes of Jessica, me, and Joschi in the front row make it look like Mystery Science Theater 3000.)
An interesting approach to digital preservation: storing digital video in the DNA of bacteria.
Here’s the video of the closing keynote I gave at the Frontend United conference in Athens.
There’s fifteen minutes of Q&A at the end where I waffle on in response to some thought-provoking ideas from the audience.
At Patterns Day, Alice shared what she has learned from shepherding the Origami project within the Financial Times.
Jina invented an entirely new genre for her Patterns Day talk—autobiographical fantasy.
