Lazy-Loading ES2015 Modules in the Browser
Technical Manager at Avenue Code and Technical Leader at Macys.com
ES2015 is already productionready through transpilers such as Babel. Now you no longer need to fight the AMD vs. CommonJS war, since you can simply write ES2015 modules, have them transpiled to ES5 and delivered to the browser, which can either happen synchronously just like CommonJS modules or asynchronously just like AMD modules. This talk demonstrates how to load ES2015 modules both synchronously during page load and asynchronously lazyload using System.js over Babel, as well as how to use JSPM to organize this process as well as directly resolve dependencies from NPM and GitHub.
Inclusive UX Design for Blind, Deaf and Disabled Users
There are many great applications and tools being developed and delivered on the fastest development schedules ever achieved in IT. At the same time, many IT organizations leave compliance and supporting the disabled community, the one group that needs to use technology to adapt their environment to their special needs, behind. Shame on us for leaving them behind. Solutions as simple as an alt tag and meta descriptions, combined with user testing that includes scenarios for the disabled communities, will not only ensure compliance, but ensure a larger user population of tech savvy users continue to age.
