How would The Fonz do this?

A presentation at Brum.js in in Birmingham, UK by Phil Hawksworth

Web developers have never had more tools and toys at our fingertips. It can be tempting to use them all in innovative and creative ways. Sometimes this is ideal. Sometimes this is dangerous. Knowing the difference is key. In my career I’ve had to get creative to work around surprising constraints on client projects, I’ve built ridiculous experiments to prove concepts, and I’ve advocated for simplicity and restraint.

In this talk I’ll try to show why these things combined don’t just make me a massive hypocrite, and explore some creative patterns and their applications in modern web development.
