Adaptive Schmaptive

Aaron Gustafson’s new book hits the shelves and it has changed my world forever. Aaron is not only extremely smart about what he is discussing, but also presents some really great approaches and reasoning for this technique called “Progressive Enhancement.”

What we are essentially looking at as developers is the content first and from there we add sugar to make it taste sweet. This sweetness is attained at each level the user reaches with their browsers capabilities. Aaron discusses this method using the comparison with an M&M chocolate covered peanut(hmmmmm tasty!).

Thinking of the user rather than the browser will get you far my friend. Buy it now or Read More about Adaptive Web Design
