A few weeks back, Matt, Bernie, and I took off (temporarily!) for San Francisco. Our destination was Fluent, one of the largest web development conferences in the world. Of course, we also found some time for good beer, good food, and good coffee—not to mention a handful of selfies on the Golden Gate.
The Frontend is Expanding
…But The Web is Still The Web
As different as the web looks now compared to the early days, its core tenets—content, delivery, ubiquity—are unchanged. Designing for consistency is controversial, but designing for universality remains a steadfast standard of web development.
User Experience is RAIL-ly Important
For better or for worse—Actually, no. Scratch that. Just for better—UX is here to stay. Quantifiable performance metrics foil empathetic design principles to advance the field that’s becoming a core value proposition, rather than a nice-to-have, for the next generation of web products.
Over the next few posts, Bernie, Matt, and I will report on some of our biggest takeaways related to these topics. Stay tuned for the next installment in our series of Fluent blog posts.
