    1 thought on “Resilient Web Design”

    1. I read this online on resilientwebdesign/, which proves some of Jeremy Keith's points. It's a great historic overview of how the web got to where it is today, and how it works. I didn't necessary learn much new, I'm above average interested in this already, but it gave me a better vocabulary to talk about it. I'll most likely also read the book again.

    2. A very short book that is part recent history lesson, part convincing case for 'progressive enhancement', an approach to designing software (websites, web applications, etc) for the world wide web.Jeremy Keith has very strong opinions on design and development, and he makes a compelling argument for this approach, based on the design of the network and technologies that power the Web itself. Consistent with his philosophy, Keith has put in a lot of work to make this book accessible in every elec [...]

    3. Great book reviewing the history of Web development and a reminder of why progressive enhancement is still the best strategy for building resilient sites/apps.

    4. I nodded in agreement with basically everything here, but for some reason it didn't really have much impact on me. Sadly I don't think this is going to change anybody's mind.

    5. A brilliant look at how the web got to where it is today, and the principles and philosophy necessary to design for it (that haven't really changed, at their core, since the beginning).

    6. I love Jeremy Keith. He is seemingly the lone voice of reason in a world of JavaScript-only writing and philosophy of the web nowadays. This book is a fairly lengthy history of the web from one of the darlings of the web design blogosphere of the naughts. There's are no specifics mentioned, but I see this as his answer to the current slew of bloated front-end frameworks like React and Angular. I agree with Keith that JavaScript is far too brittle and too heavy to be used as much as it is and in [...]

    7. Clear, engaging, persuasive writing. As someone who has been building websites since 2000, I particularly enjoyed the nostalgic web history at the beginning.
