Details

Feature detection involves working out whether a browser supports a certain block of code, and running different code dependent on whether it does (or doesn't), so that the browser can always provide a working experience rather than crashing / erroring in some browsers.

In this workshop you will learn how to write your own simple feature detection, how to use a library to speed up implementation, and about native features for feature detection such as @supports.

Directions

As you enter Black River Park you will see the stairs to the entrance. Remember those :)
The visitors bays are through the booms to the right as you enter.
Once you have parked return to the stairs and enter the complex courtyard. You will see a lift on the far side of the courtyard.
Take that to the second floor and New Media Labs is directly opposite the lift as you exit. Ring the buzzer.
