HTML5 Fitness Bootcamp

Sold OutFront-End web development has become a challenge to developers, architects and business stakeholders that are not in shape with today’s modern web platform. Yesterday’s techniques, standards and work flows no longer work. User expectations of interactive experiences set bar too high for mere mortals to hurdle. If that were not enough the constant churn of JavaScript frameworks, CSS libraries and new HTML5 standards leaves us more confused and frustrated than helping.

Just like our personal health and fitness require proper diet and exercise creating and maintaining good web front-end requires a certain level of fitness and lifestyle. HTML5 fitness is more than just having clean, performant code, it is about a development lifestyle that produces consistent, maintainable applications your customers will love.

This workshop is designed to answer many questions you may have about modern front-end development. We will cover good user experience, architecture and work flow options. You will be exposed to exercises and systems you and your team can adopt to make your development more consistent and maintainable. You will be walked through using various tools to give you insight into your application’s health and how to improve its quality.

We will also review modern responsive web design techniques, including image management options. This will go beyond the basic responsive media queries and cover usability research across various device classes.

As a bonus you will learn strategies, work flows and tools to help you and your team test against real mobile devices.

You will leave this full day workshop armed with knowledge, confidence and tools to help you make front-end web experiences your customers want to use. Your team will benefit from project and code governance resources. We will cover tools and telemetry you need to monitor to create the feedback loops that enable you to continuously improve your applications.
