___________________ 🎙️ It's not the 1990s any more🎙️ The world wide web is a hugely powerful tool for making the world work better. But too often, in 2024, we're still treating it like the primitive document hyperlinker that was its genesis in the 1990s. Join Ben for a whistle-stop tour through some of the amazing things that the web is capable of today - from enhancements to the core technologies of HTML, CSS and JavaScript that make it easier for developers to craft delightful user experiences, to new and evolving features that are giving the web capabilities like it's never had before. He will address queries like: ✔️ In what ways has the web changed since its inception in the 1990s? ✔️ What are some of the latest useful additions to the web's core technologies of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript? ✔️ How are new and evolving browser APIs shaping the landscape of the modern web? ✔️ How well supported is this modern web vision? Can you use it in the next thing you build?
