Crafting Rich Experiences with Progressive Enhancement

If you’ve been working on the web for any amount of time, you’ve likely heard (or even used) the term “progressive enhancement” before. As you probably know, it is the gold standard of how to approach web design. But what is progressive enhancement really? What does it mean? How does it work? And how does it fit into our workflow in a time of rapidly evolving languages and browsers? In this session, Aaron Gustafson will answer all of these questions and provide concrete takeaways that will help you improve your web design skills.
