Important location change: this event will take place at thoughtbot (https://goo.gl/maps/hC9cDyyaz632!).

We are thrilled to welcome Jeremy Keith while he's in town for An Event Apart! Jeremy will take us on a trip through the history of web standards, sharing insights from his book Resilient Web Design.

In his words: "Thrill to the explanations of error handling! Gasp at the separation of concerns! Weep as you realize that he's talking about progressive enhancement yet again! Or, y'know, just have a very pleasant evening geeking out about where CSS comes from." :-)

A bit about our presenter:

Jeremy Keith lives in Brighton, England where he makes websites with the splendid design agency Clearleft (https://clearleft.com). You may know him from such books as DOM Scripting (https://domscripting.com), Bulletproof Ajax (https://bulletproofajax.com), HTML5 For Web Designers (https://html5forwebdesigners.com), Resilient Web Design (https://resilientwebdesign.com), and, most recently, Going Offline (https://abookapart.com/products/going-offline).

He curated the dConstruct conference for a number of years as well as Brighton SF (http://brightonsf.adactio.com), and he organised the world's first Science Hack Day (http://sciencehackday.org). He also made the website Huffduffer (https://huffduffer.com) 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 (https://thesession.org). He also indulges a darker side of his bouzouki-playing in the band Salter Cane (https://saltercane.com).

Jeremy spends most of his time goofing off on the internet, documenting his time-wasting on https://adactio.com , where he has been writing for over fifteen years.
