Special Agent Cece Blackwell is smart, savvy and knows her way around a race car. Heading up a team to investigate the murder of a NASCAR driver is right up her alley. The only problem is NASCAR star Blain Sanders, the man who requested her. Blain is well-heeled, well connected and drop-dead gorgeous-and he knew Cece when she was a drag-racing…

By combining web standards, progressive enhancement, an iterative approach to design and development, and a desire to question the status quo, your team can create sites and applications that will perform well in a wide range of present and future devices. This guide points the way.

  • Focusing on optimal, not absolute solutions
  • Feature detection, Modernizr, and polyfills
  • RWD, mobile first, and progressive enhancement
  • UIs that work with multiple user input modes
  • Image optimization, SVG, and server-side options
  • The horribly complex world of web video
  • The Web we want to see in the future
