Breaking Out Of The Tetris Mindset - Christian Heilmann @ Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2017

Tetronimos by Christian Heilmann

The Beyond Tellerrand Conference keynote by Christian Heilmann resonates with me, much. I'd never thought being seen as a 'conservative blocker on the right', but obviously, when it comes to the foundational layers of building stuff for the web, I find myself more on the right side of Chris' block chain (although the 'square' would…


Gedanken zum 28. Geburtstag des "www"

Es startete vorhin mit einem Tweet, an den ich Antwort an Antwort hängte, bis ich mir dachte, hm, da will wohl ein Blogeintrag daraus werden: Je länger ich 'was mit web' mache, umso weniger interessieren mich die 'trendigen' fe/ux geschichten, umso mehr aber die ethischen aspekte. dezentral. zugänglich. offen. neutral. sowas halt … je mehr…


Three things we need to change to save the web – Tim Berners-Lee

Happy Birthday, dear 'web'. 28 years: You are not going to join the 27 club, which is a good thing, but you picked up some bad habits recently. (…) I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In…


What Comes Next Is the Future

Dedicated to all the people who work to make the web a little better every day […] a documentary film about the web […] It is the story of Tim Berners-Lee’s creation – how it came to be, where it’s been, and where it’s going – as told by the people who build it. vimeo.com…


Resilient Webdesign - Jeremy Keith

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…


Atomic Design - Brad Frost

Brad has coined the term 'Atomic design' (although there has been a slight and friendly banter with Andy Clarke about who first mentioned this as an idea how elements of a design can be organized) for his idea for a methodology to create the 'lego' bricks for a (web) design system. I think the real…


Inclusive Design Patterns - Heydon Pickering

I find myself falling down deeper and deeper inside the rabbit hole that my profession as a designer for the web is. The more complex, daunting and exciting the task gets to make something work on an unknown number of devices, for users with a wide range of technical, physical and mental capabilities in an…


Jeremy Keith - Choice

We’ve made the mistake in the past of framing problems as “either/or”, when in fact, the correct solution was “both!”: you can either have a desktop site or a mobile site, you can either have rich interactivity or accessibility, you can either have a single page app or progressive enhancement. We don’t have to choose.…


Surveying the Landscape - Peter Gasston

A quick recap of the threats to the web as I see them: prioritisation of apps on mobile OSes, including URL interception; destructive online advertising and tracking; ad blocking contributing to a collapse of monetisation; publishers distributing through centralised platforms; emerging markets with no legacy attachment to the web and no incentive to use it;…


Progressive Web(rocker)App

Ha! It! Really! Works! I have to admit I was a bit sceptical of the outcome after I tweaked and added things and bits of my website at the Indiewebcamp in Nuremberg, setting up a service worker and offline caching things, adding a manifest file … while in theory I understand what all of this…


Regressive Web Apps – Jeremy Keith

[…] Looking at most of the examples of Progressive Web Apps, there’s an even more worrying trend than the return to m-dot subdomains. It looks like most of them are concentrating so hard on the “app” part that they’re forgetting about the “web” bit. That means they’re assuming that modern JavaScript is available everywhere. adactio.com…


Webkongress Erlangen 2016

Ich hatte die Ehre und das Vergnügen, auf dem #wke2016 zu sprechen. Im Vorfeld verfluchte ich meine leichtsinnige Zusage, da etwas zum Track "HTML5 - Back to the Roots" beizutragen und ein wenig zu Progressive Enhancement zu erzählen. Oder eben: Mit den Urbausteinen des Web statt dagegen zu arbeiten. Auch wenn es nicht das erste Mal…
