Wesley enjoys creating world-class user interfaces and experiences that people fall in love with. You can see him speak at the occasional conference, read his posts on wesleyhales.com, or follow him on twitter @wesleyhales.
This talk wades through all the noise to discuss best practices for client-side user agent detection, code compression, GZIP, minification and build processes. We’ll review frameworks like grunt.js, HTML5boilerplate, and many others to see how these new techniques might fit into our current build processes with tools like maven or ant.
Wesley is a user interface consultant for CNN.com and has implemented many of the performance improving techniques mentioned in this talk. Come see the code and tools that did and didn’t work along with many fast-paced, code slinging demos.
Is HTML5 ready for production code? You bet! This is a look into all the different HTML5 technologies that can be used in your code, today.
We'll review a collection of tips, tricks, and best practices for HTML5 and W3C APIs such as Web Storage, Web Sockets, Web Workers, Geolocation, and Device Orientation. We’ll examine how these APIs contrast between desktop and mobile environments, then we’ll go into a deep dive on real world implementations for each one.
