CSS: 10 years and counting
  • In 1995, I didn't expect CSS to last longer than 10 years. I thought we would learn from the experience and then design a better successor. But nothing better has come up yet. Indeed, CSS is getting more and more popular and the demand is strong to make it much more powerful without changing its model and syntax. I'll take a quick look at CSS's first 10 years and try to extrapolate to the future, to see how common requests such as complex layouts and more of the world's typographic traditions can be integrated into it.

Bulletproof Ajax
  • Ajax need not be a technological barrier to entry. By implementing Ajax using the principle of progressive enhancement, you can ensure access for everyone. With a little forethought and planning, you can provide a rich Ajax-enhanced experience for the majority of your users, whilst making sure that the minority aren’t left behind.
  • By applying the principle of progressive enhancement to Ajax, you can ensure that your site's functionality is bulletproof. It sounds paradoxical, but the best way to build an Ajax application may be to build an old-fashioned website that uses links and forms to transmit information to the server. Then, using unobtrusive event handlers, intercept those transmissions and route them through the XMLHttpRequest object instead. The server can then return just a portion of the page instead of the whole page. This is the Hijax model. Using this methodology, you can guarantee a fallback solution for users without Ajax.

Designing the Next Generation of Web Apps
  • As the buzz and excitement around Web 2.0 continues to increase, much is already changing in how we design and develop online. In this presentation, Jeffrey Veen will look at how new thinking is being infused into design practices and trends.

New Technology, Accessible Technology
  • The rise of video and other rich-media experiences on the web presents new challenges for accessibility. Are people with disabilities being left behind? In this talk, we will explore how new technologies are not only supporting more advanced accessibility techniques, they're enabling new ways for people of all abilities to work together.

Mobility and Web Standards
  • Having an excellent user experience while browsing the Internet with mobile computing devices is challenging. This presentation will talk about the key challenges and the role of open standards.

Panel: Browsing through New Technologies
  • It is fair to say that the major task for browser developers and standards makers still is interoperability on standards that already exist. But that work appears to be progressing well (with, e.g., a big HTML5 effort in W3C and CSS 2.1 as good as done) and so it's time to think about what features we want next.
  • New challenges exist, e.g., in complex layouts: with desktop screens getting as big as newspaper sheets, designers want to use all available space. At the same time, screens of mobile phones are limited by the size of people's pockets. And printers have their own limitations as well. People want to use all three, how do we make that possible?
  • Microformats, RSS feeds, "tags," personalized skins and, of course, search engines all point to a demand for alternative access to the same content. But the counterpart of multiple uses is richer mark-up. Will authors make their content richer?
  • The current architecture of the Web works well with static content that is combined through transclusion (SRC attribute) and hyperlinking (HREF attribute): e.g., HTML pages with style, graphics, applets, photos, etc. Is that architecture enough to integrate math? Or to create "widgets" (portable, zero-install programs)?
  • A panel of browser makers will discuss how they think the standards (and their browsers!) should evolve.
