48: Progressive Enhancement | With Aaron Gustafson

Play Download media
In this episode we talk about the Progressive Enhancement approach to web design and development with Aaron Gustafson. He talks us through some of the advantages of adopting Progressive Enhancement (PE) versus more traditional approaches. We also discuss barriers that might prevent us using PE and Aaron makes some useful recommendations. A much more in-depth discussion of the topic is available in Aaron's book 'Adaptive Web Design: Crafting Rich Experiences with Progressive Enhancement'. This week's jukebox picks are definitely going on the Relative Paths Alt Playlist! I started with 'Bambro Koyo Ganda (featuring Innov Gnawa)' by Bonobo. Mark then gave us 'Kick Jump Twist' by Sylvan Esso. Brilliant and needed an immediate second listen. Finally Aaron hit us with post-punk classic 'Teen Age Riot' by Sonic Youth, and a great story. He also urged us to check out The Chameleons following his Instagram vid of 'Script Of The Bridge' on deck.
