A look at Progressive Enhancement and what it means, what it doesn’t mean, why it’s more important than ever, and how to get buy in from your clients, colleagues and team.

We’ll review how initial research and discovery can help you identify a site’s core content and functionality and how in turn you can then use progressive enhancement as a development approach.

We’ll look at the mistakes I’ve made and how you can avoid them, as well as how you can add value and improve your sites through peer review.

We’ll also discuss why one seemingly innocuous statement – ‘browser software may ignore this tag’ – was fundamental in making the web what it is today.
