EnhanceConf 2016March 09, 2016
Last week I travelled to London for the first EnhanceConf. Two fantastic days full of insight, focusing on progressive enhancement and how to approach building for the web and it's many unpredictable and ever-changing facets.
Thursday was spent at CodeNode with Aaron Gustafson for a workshop focusing on planning adaptive interfaces. I left with my head bubbling with ideas that will probably keep me busy for the rest of the year, all before the conference had even started. When talking to Aaron about a problem I was currently working on he encouraged us to start writing about our experiences, so, here I am.
Friday saw a change of location, this time at the beautiful RSA. The conference followed the format of last years responsive day out, four sessions with three 20 minute talks followed by a Q & A session; even keeping the compère, Jeremy Keith. The entire conference was transcribed live by Oli Evans on JS Bin and Simon McManus the organiser has already uploaded videos for all the sessions to YouTube. If you were there, I hope you enjoyed it as much I did, if you weren’t there and you like idea check out the videos below.
