Jeremy Keith has published a new book, and anyone who's enjoyed one of his recent talks about the build-in robustness of the core web technologies, and how we managed to cripple it by designing with the wrong focus, might want to read this.
I certainly do, this is very much up my alley.
With a title like Resilient Web Design, you might think that this is a handbook for designing robust websites. This is not a handbook. It’s more like a history book. (…) You won’t find any code in here to help you build better websites. But you will find ideas and approaches. Ideas are more resilient than code. I’ve tried to combine the most resilient ideas from the history of web design into an approach for building the websites of the future.
A nice thing, too: The 'book' is published on the web. It is a webpage. Like old school. But it is an 'ebook' of sorts as well, since the site sports https and a service worker and his magic js elves, and so this 'webbook' can be read offline, to. And be 'installed' on your mobile device's home screen, on some operating systems.
So not only is this content published on the web, but also a glimpse into what a 'website' can offer, if done right. If you want to sell this to marketing, call it a 'Progressive Web App', because everyone wants an App, right? :-)
