Play Don’t break the web: Why web standards matter and how to use them responsibly.
The Web community has come a long way in pushing for solid cross-browser standards support and it's incredibly important that as developers we focus on leveraging these standards in a responsible and practical way. In this talk, we'll discuss and learn about the standards process, the best practices for identifying and embracing stable standards, and how to leverage standards responsibly to build websites that are cross-browser and available to broad audiences. We’ll also hear some great lessons from the team that built Microsoft.com about their efforts to embrace standards and responsive design in the redesign of Microsoft’s flagship website.
