The excellent (and cheap!) State Of The Browser is coming back to Conway Hall this year on Saturday, October 30th. Speakers include Rachel Andrew and Amber Case.
Everyone needs to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test to get into the venue, which is reassuring.
I think I’m gonna go!

The transcript of Andy’s talk from this year’s State Of The Browser conference.
I don’t think using scale as an excuse for over-engineering stuff—especially CSS—is acceptable, even for huge teams that work on huge products.

Three conference talks
Conference talks are like buses. They take a long time and you constantly ask yourself why you chose to get on board.
I’ll start again.
Conference talks are like buses. You wait for ages and then three come along at once. Or at least, three conference videos have come along at once:
- The video of the talk I gave at State Of The Browser called The Web Is Agreement.
- The video of the talk I gave at New Adventures called Building.
- The video of the talk I gave at Frontend United called Going Offline.
The other two are …less practical. They’re kind of pretentious really. That’s kinda my style.
The Web Is Agreement was a one-off talk for State Of The Browser. I like how it turned out, and I’d love to give it again if there were a suitable event.
I’ve added these latest three conference talk videos to my collection. I’m using Notist to document past talks. It’s a great service! I became a paying customer just over a year ago and it was money well spent. I really like how I’ve been able to set up a custom domain:

Here’s the video of the talk I gave at State Of The Browser last year. The audio is a bit out of sync with the video.
The talk is called The Web Is Agreement. It’s ostensibly about web standards, but I used that as a jumping off point for talking about life, the universe, and everything.
I enjoyed giving this talk, but I’ve only ever given it this one time. If you know of any events where this talk would be a good fit, let me know.
