The award winning Big Web Show features special guests and topics like web publishing, art direction, content strategy, typography, web technology, and more. It's everything web that matters.
Hosted by Jeffrey Zeldman.
Scott Jehl and Jeffrey Zeldman discuss the picture element: a container for multiple images. Making the emerging W3C standard picture element work in today’s browsers. Polyfills and progressive enhancement. Responsible responsive design. Shim versus polyfill; srcset versus picture; the prefix wars. Balancing company projects and open source, community projects.
Picturefill is a responsive images polyfill approach that web designers and developers can use today.
Scott Jehl is a web designer and developer who works with the bright folks at Filament Group, where he creates websites and applications for a range of clients (including the 2012 responsive design of the Boston Globe). He is an active contributor to the open source community, frequently releasing ideas and projects on Github; a jQuery team member (most recently leading the development of the jQuery Mobile project); and the co-author of Designing With Progressive Enhancement (New Riders: 2010)
