Falling in Love with Forms

A presentation at Microsoft Edge Web Summit in in Mountain View, CA, USA by Aaron Gustafson

Forms. Without them, the web would not be what it is today, but they are challenging from a markup and styling standpoint.

In this session, we will explore forms from top to bottom, examining how they work and how their components can be incorporated with other elements to maximize accessibility, improve semantics, and allow for more flexible styling. You’ll get to see the complete picture with forms, including

  • new HTML5 field types;
  • validation, error messages & formatting hints;
  • how to mark up and style forms for the greatest flexibility in responsive designs; and
  • best practices for enhancing forms with JavaScript.
