Objective

To emphasise the changing nature of web, and to encourage adoption of progressive enhancement.

Description

The amount of control that we as a community exercise on the web is unfortunate. The web is far more flexible and inclusive than we believe it to be. Let’s appreciate the beauty of the web and understand why we should adopt (and encourage) practices that uphold the spirit of the web.

Is this going to be preachy?
Slightly.

    This talk is very much based on my workshop proposal. At the time of making that proposal I had first considered speaking at the conference. However, I opted for the workshop because translating the idea into practice may not be simple.

    And yet, at the same time, I think that this will make a relevant talk for the larger audience at the conference, especially because decisions makers are less likely to attend a workshop. So I’m taking Jitendra’s suggestion and proposing this talk.

    I am also happy if anyone else wishes to contribute to the talk or make it a larger discussion.
