If the web is going to be competitive with native in the race for user experience points, its going to need to find a way to present itself a bit better upon initial load.
That’s the message Javier Usobiaga is spreading.
Javier is a web designer and front end developer in Barcelona, where he and his wife, Marta Armada, run Swwweet. He says that, while designers build websites in new and innovative ways these days and have made great strides with responsive design, there’s still something left to be fixed.
In his session “Design for Loading,” Javier will make the point that it’s important to care about having all content accessible at all times and will show techniques for making websites look and behave as close to fully-loaded as possible, as soon as possible.
This, he argues, is key to the Web’s competitiveness with native apps that don’t normally suffer from load-time issues. Get the full scoop on building websites for the future at WebVisions Barcelona.
