  • Standardizing <select>: What the future holds for HTML Controls

    Google San Francisco

    For our February event, Stephanie Stimac will join us to talk about what the future holds for HTML Controls.

    Talk details:
    Thought HTML was done? Think again! Those who work on the web platform are ready to extend HTML controls with not only updated native web styles, so that we're no longer stuck in the Windows 95 era of design, but we're also starting to look at new HTML controls to help solve some of the problems developers encounter when trying to extend the current controls to fit their needs. We're also taking a step back to re-examine what the key pain points for developers are when it comes to controls. Our first stop? The select element. I'll discuss the current state of styling the select element, the developer feedback we've received that's indicated this is a problem space we need to fix, what the future looks like for improving (dare I say standardizing?) and how developers and designers can get involved to help drive the future of these components forward.

    About the speaker:
    Stephanie Stimac (@seaotta) is a Program Manager for Developer Experiences on Microsoft Edge who comes from a background in web and user interface design as well as front-end development. She's worked on developer tooling in the browser as well as the open source project, webhint.io and is currently responsible for Edge developer engagement through the Web We Want initiative. Before Microsoft, she worked in an agency crafting digital experiences for a range of large clients like Honeywell, Microsoft Military Affairs, Microsoft Windows and T-Mobile. She has a passion for the open web and helping to drive the future of it forward.

    Schedule:
    * 5:00 PM—Doors open
    * 6:00-6:15 PM—Announcements <-- Note the new start time!
    * 6:15-7:15 PM—Talk and Q&A

  • Moving Pictures: A Snapshot At the Future of Web Media with Henri Helvetica

    Join us for the first SFHTML5 event of 2020, with guest speaker Henri Helvetica all the way from Toronto!

    Talk Abstract:
    On a cold February night, NCSA Mosaic browser engineers would propose the addition of a new HTML tag: IMG. It was believed that adding images to the web would promote experimentation, and push the web forward.

    Indeed forward the web went. We now have a mélange of media coming down the wire and at an increasingly higher rate every year. All this rich data has made for challenging performance, and engineers have been feverishly researching solutions around greater media compression . ‘Moving Pictures’ explores the ways we are tackling this problem, through current research around (you guessed it) new open source image and video formats used in present day, and planned for future use.

    About the speaker
    Henri is a freelance developer who has turned his interests to a passionate mix of site performance engineering and pinches of user experience. When not reading the deluge of daily research docs and case studies, or auditing sites in devtools, Henri can be found contributing back to the community: Toronto Web Performance Group meetup + JAMstack TORONTO organizer + SPOTLIGHT: PERFORMANCE co-organizer, curating conference content or volunteering his time for lunch and learns at various bootcamps. Additionally, you can find him frequenting conferences, and touching base w/ the community - all with a radiant smile. Otherwise, Henri is focusing on running the fastest 5k possible (surprise surprise).

    Schedule:
    5:00 PM—Doors open
    6:30-6:45 PM—Announcements
    6:45-7:45 PM—Talk by Henri, followed by Q&A

    Notes:
    * Online registration for this event closes 72 hours before the start of the event (new building rules, sorry).
    * On-site registration (for registered attendees) closes at 7:00 PM.
    * For security reasons, unregistered guests and +1s are *not* allowed. Every attendee must be a member of SFHTML5 (on Meetup) and register for the event (RSVP Yes) 72 hours before the event to enter the event; no exceptions.
    * And, yes, this event will be recorded and posted on the SFHTML5 YouTube channel.
