The When, Why, and Why Not of Progressive Web Apps feat. Jeremy Keith

Decoded

Almost every website can be built as a progressive web app (PWA), but developers aren’t doing it. Why — or rather, why now? Their reluctance isn’t necessarily due to technical reasons; instead, cultural reasons may explain why adoption hasn’t grown rapidly.Our guest for this episode, Jeremy Keith, is a long-time contributor to the developer ecosystem and an engineer who builds progressive web apps and resilient web design. He chats with our host Sydney Lai about the present and future of PWAs and how they’ll impact software development.Other talking points include:What it takes to develop PWAsThe reasons PWAs aren’t used more oftenConsiderations developers should keep in mind during their creative processHow resilient web design will influence the evolution of software developmentInterested in building the future of software development?

60: What is a resilient website? (with Jeremy Keith)

A Question of Code

This week we're joined by Jeremy Keith, a web developer and author who's had a massive influence on at least one of our hosts. Jeremy introduces us to the concept of "resilient" websites, and has loads of advice for developers new to the field. The web is for everyone, and websites should reflect that: if you're using some advanced fancy features, make sure that your core functionality is available to everyone.We delve into the thorny issues of progressive enhancement and graceful degradation. Are they ultimately the same thing? Or does real-world pragmatism get in the way? Is it easier to become a web developer today? Or has the increase in dev-tooling added too much complexity? Find out all this and more in this week's resilient instalment of A Question of Code.Mentioned in this episode: Find Jeremy Keith online at adactio.com Read Jeremy Keith's books at abookapart.com, including the oldie-but-goldie HTML5 for Web Designers.

Create Your Own Website Write about What You Discover and Be Dependable with Jeremy Keith

IT Career Energizer

Phil’s guest on this episode of the IT Career Energizer podcast is Jeremy Keith. He is a web developer at Clearleft, a design agency that he co-founded, in 2005.  He is the author of several books about web design and is a regular speaker at conferences across the world. He is also an organiser of events, including the recent Patterns Day 2 in Brighton.  In this episode, Phil and Jeremy Keith discuss how writing improves your spoken communication skills and builds your career. They also talk about how to get through difficult career phases. Jeremy shares his take on the future of the industry as a whole including some of the concerns he has about the direction web development is going in. KEY TAKEAWAYS: (2.36) TOP CAREER TIP As you learn something and progress in your career, write about it. You could just keep a record for yourself or put it all on a website. That approach has served Jeremy well. This really enhances your communication skills. You soon become good at explaining complex things in writing and using speech. Writing is also a great way to be noticed. (6.14) WORST CAREER MOMENT Having to let some staff go, because of the financial situation his company was in, was gut-wrenching for Jeremy. However, it taught him that no matter how hard things get, life goes on. The people he had to let go now have decent jobs, so they are now in a good situation. That experience also changed the way he handles company finances. As a result, they have not had any financial issues since. (9.21) CAREER HIGHLIGHT CoolSiteoftheDay.com has been highlighting the best sites and apps, since 1994. Keith was a fan from day one and set himself the goal of getting one of his sites selected as the coolest site of the day. Naturally, he was thrilled when that is exactly what happened. (11.05) THE FUTURE OF CAREERS IN I.T Keith is worried about some aspects of the industry. Websites have become too bloated and slow, especially in light of the needs of emerging markets. He is concerned that the process of creating sites is becoming so complicated that the majority of people are not be able to easily learn the skill. Nevertheless, he is still optimistic. The web design and development communities are still willing to share and work closely together. Once someone figures something out, they share it a way of working that benefits everyone. (14.02) THE REVEAL What first attracted you to a career in I.T.? – The fact that something he made in his bedroom could be seen by anyone in the world who wanted to view it. What’s the best career advice you received? –If you are supposed to be somewhere or do something, show up. What’s the worst career advice you received? – Invest in this or that technology. Usually, following that advice turns out to be wrong. Instead, you need to learn the underlying principles. What would you do if you started your career now? – He would probably go down the self-taught route and focus on learning the underlying principles rather than focusing on just one tech discipline. What are your current career objectives? – Helping others is what brings Jeremy the most satisfaction, so that is his current focus. What’s your number one non-technical skill? – Writing. It has enabled him to become a good public speaker and communicator. How do you keep your own career energized? – Jeremy has been lucky to find new tech that has interests him enough to keep him energized. What do you do away from technology? – Music is still his first love. He also enjoys reading, but he is careful to read non-fiction as well as fiction, which keeps things interesting. (20.07) FINAL CAREER TIP Build your own website and use it to learn to write well, share what you know in different ways and track your career. BEST MOMENTS (4.42) – Jeremy - “Develop the skill of being able to explain things well.” (12.39) – Jeremy - “Share what you know once you have figured something out. This is good for everyone.” (14.57) – Jeremy - “If you are supposed to be somewhere, or on a call, at a certain time, be there.” (15.52) – Jeremy - “Don’t invest in just one tech. Instead, learn the underlying principles. You can apply those to anything.” (20.14) – Jeremy - “Have a website of your own where you share things and track your career.” ABOUT THE HOST – PHIL BURGESS Phil Burgess is an independent IT consultant who has spent the last 20 years helping organisations to design, develop and implement software solutions.  Phil has always had an interest in helping others to develop and advance their careers.  In 2017, Phil started the I.T.

Talk: The Layers of the Web – Jeremy Keith

All the People

This is a talk from beyond tellerrand // Berlin 2019. Jeremy Keith presents "The Layers of the Web" and opened the sixth #btconf in Berlin with it. The Layers of the Web The World Wide Web turned 30 this year. The web has changed quite a bit over that time. But progress has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary: changes have accreted on top of what has come before. This layered iterative approach also works for building websites. Together we'll uncover how to build resilient, performant, accessible and beautiful structures that work with the grain of the materials of the web. About Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft. You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting, Bulletproof Ajax, HTML5 For Web Designers, Resilient Web Design, and, most recently, Going Offline. He curated the dConstruct conference for a number of years as well as Brighton SF, and he organised the world's first Science Hack Day. He also made the website Huffduffer to allow people to make podcasts of found sounds—it's like Instapaper for audio files. Hailing from Erin's green shores, Jeremy maintains his link to Irish traditional music running the community site The Session. He also indulges a darker side of his bouzouki-playing in the band Salter Cane. Jeremy spends most of his time goofing off on the internet, documenting his time-wasting on adactio.com, where he has been writing for over fifteen years.
