IE For Developers at Web 2.0 Expo


Here’s the slide deck from my session at Web 2.0 Expo last week.  I cut out a few things in order to get it to fit in the 50 minute slot they allotted me, so it’s kind of short, if you’re looking for full details, check out the deck from Fronteers as it has a bit more detail on things. 


I did add a bit about search providers to this deck, so there is a little new stuff there. 


It was great to be in NYC for the week, and I met a lot of great people.  It was exciting to see all the people who want to see IE8 and hear their excitement about standards and the new features!  I can’t wait to deliver!

    It’s great that you guys finally decided to play catch up and even start implementing very recent stuff. It’s really going to help web sites/applications.

    However… There is still a lot of DOM 2 (and 3) to implement!

    What about Events, Style, Traversal & Range ? Those are quite important for developers too. Not implementing them in IE8 means developers will still be forced to use dirty hacks, bloated compatibility layers, etc to make things work, and it’s both annoying and sad… Especially considering that, in some cases (i.e. events, stylesheets) IE does implement a proprietary API that is quite similar to the W3C standard!

    If interoperability and following the spec is your goal for CSS, it should be your goal for DOM too.
