Last Wednesday’s Open Web Open Mic event at the Mozilla Toronto office was really great. 50-60 people from the Mozilla Toronto community gathered to discuss their projects via a science fair and a series of lightening talks. I had a good conversation about WebVTT with a group of Seneca students, learned about the upcoming Mini Maker Faire Toronto from Jenn Dodd, and discussed the use of What Can I Do For Mozilla for non coding work with Josh Matthews.
As this was an Open Web event, I took the opportunity to talk about Building for Mobile Web Compatibility.
The takeaways from this presentation are AVOID:
- User Agent (UA) Detection
- CSS Vendor Prefixes
- Browser Specific Property/Feature Usage
- Feature Detection and Media Queries
- Web Standards
If you would like to see more, I have posted my slides on github.io.
Thank you to everyone who came out to this event and especially to Majken ‘Kensie’ Connor for pulling us all together.
