Web Standards for Web Applications: Half Day Seminar
For many years the web standards movement focused its energies on best practices for web sites. Few of us, if any, could have foreseen the rapid emergence of applications on the Web. As the Web moves more and more toward rich experiences, shared APIs and a myriad of open source and proprietary options, it makes for an exciting and innovative time! However, what happens when applications are built without consideration for universal access, scalability, maintenance, and innovative evolution?
To get a thoughtful reevaluation of how we work in the context of the web application, Molly will demonstrate how using best practices and standards provides us with a stable platform, upon which we can begin an application's evolution and nurture it for a long, healthy, creative and innovative lifecycle. You'll learn to choose the right infrastructure and framework, whether you're using web standards models (such as DOM and multi-modal CSS), the Adobe model (of Flex, Flash, and Actionscript), the Microsoft model (of Silverlight and XAML), or others.
You'll see how a strong integration of markup, CSS, and DOM can help you and your team tackle management and scalability challenges down the road. Molly will show you techniques for managing cross-browser experiences, including access to all users and with multiple delivery platforms, such as online and mobile screens. If you want to build great applications that incorporate the sense and sensibility of web standards, you won't want to miss this seminar.
About Molly Holzschlag
Earlier in life, Molly avoided a regular job including those silly start-up ventures and chose instead to write a lot of books and articles and stuff on Web standards, and talk a lot about them, too. She now avoids the former, while the latter is an ongoing inevitability.
