Introduction
[Autogenerated] I'm Jennifer Grossman. Bach in It's plural site, play by play with desktop and mobile browser expert PPK. My path through Web development started with the pristine theory and specifications of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. But I soon learned that even Simple tags and CSS properties didn't always behave the same in all browsers. Now the easy way out is to ignore any browsers that don't work the way I expect them to. But the more mature approaches to accommodate the major browsers equally and inevitably, that search led me to corks. Mo dot org's where some guy had painstakingly catalogued the features of HTML, CSS and JavaScript and documented how they behaved in not only different browsers but specific versions of each browser. That guy was PPK, and he's since moved on to applying the same rigor to mobile browsers and devices. His work is supported by Microsoft, Google and Adobe, which brought him to Seattle, where I sat down with him for a live code and debugging session. The task was this right, a mobile HTML five application that decipher Sze Morse code in the form of short and long taps on a smartphone screen. He had several devices with him, and I added a few more. You'll learn about his systematic process for developing software testing features on multiple devices and achieving reasonable consistency between them. Play by plays a Siri's where we work with top developers and designers. It's live and unrehearsed, and we moved a pretty quick pace. You learn how top thinkers approach problems, and you may even pick up a few tricks and tips as you see them work. So let's get started.
