Devices that consume the web are being created at a never-before heard of rate. They’re getting smaller, lighter, faster, sharper, and sexier. The density of screens are even beginning to compete with print and its only up from here! How do we implement methods for these devises and are also forward-thinking?

This talk is about how to implement HiDPI graphics while tailoring the best possible ratio of “speed vs awesome”, and other techniques for fast and stunning visual experiences.

“Designing for the Modern Web” session at WordCamp San Francisco 2012

I was so thrilled to give a talk at WordCamp San Francisco this past weekend! My talk was on "Designing for the Modern Web" - Which in essence was a talk about designing for HiDPI. Check out my Slides & Description:

Devices that consume the web are being created at a never-before heard of rate.  They’re getting smaller, lighter, faster, sharper, and sexier.  Life is awesome right?  But what about us web designers?

Let’s talk about how to get the best possible ratio of speed vs awesome, and what techniques to use for fast and stunning visual experiences.

I'll post the video whenever they have it up. All in all it was a fantastic weekend. I learned a ton from the other fabulous speakers, and the other attendees. Can't wait for next year.
