@font-face and Bulletproof Icon Fonts presented by Zach Leatherman

UI Synchronicity, a Lightning Talk by Eli Perelman

Fast applications matter, and sometimes achieving speed is more about perception than it is about optimizing code. Learn about a few paradigms involved with building performant UIs and how you can start implementing these techniques yourself.

@font-face and Bulletproof Icon Fonts, by Zach Leatherman

Zach will r̶e̶c̶k̶l̶e̶s̶s̶l̶y̶ ̶a̶b̶u̶s̶e̶ present NebraskaJS with ̶a̶ ̶t̶r̶i̶a̶l̶ ̶r̶u̶n̶,̶ ̶e̶r̶ ̶I̶ ̶m̶e̶a̶n̶,̶ ̶ a special preview of his upcoming CSSConf talk.

Care must be taken when implementing web fonts for content and icons to ensure a great experience for all users. What happens when your font doesn’t load? What happens when @font-face isn’t supported in the browser? In this talk, I’ll show you how to implement bulletproof font icons.

Special Bonus Topics (if time permits)

• `position: sticky`

• How Filament Group does Responsive Tables


As always, we’ll head over to DJ’s Dugout afterwards for a few drinks and Zach will probably get all cantankerous about progressive enhancement (again). It’ll be fun!

    Great presentation and slide deck. I would have loved to have you keep going for at least another 1/2 hr.
