Much of the content was fairly basic “must know” stuff. A little review never hurts though; Besides — if you don’t know this stuff: you really _need_ to know before you get much further down the road.
These are things like:
- Terrible error messages (“Error: Can’t display error message”)
- Non-scalable font sizes
- Distracting layouts
The second half of the presentation revolved around that final bullet. Some tips, tricks, and approaches to “Hijax” (covered here previously).
- Making up for an absence of js with css, using :target (and again providing a fallback, of course)
- Proving the “submit” for the form if xhr can’t be used
As a frequent reader of ajaxian – these are things you aren’t considering earth shattering – but you DO use them everyday – and you know (probably first hand) that they can hurt your site.
