EE Podcast

A new episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure!

For episode 63, we talk with Aaron Gustafson about progressive enhancement and his book Adaptive Web Design.

Episode #63

In Progressive Enhancement, Aaron joins us to discuss a layered approach to front-end development that focuses on the user and accessibility (using the broadest definition of the term).

Lea and I first talk with Aaron about his book — available in print and digital — which we both read prior to the interview (great incentive!). Aaron then clarified the difference between progressive enhancement and graceful degradation (a confusing point for me, for years). Aaron also detailed the process of developing with progressive enhancement, as well as some approaches he has taken using ExpressionEngine. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Have a listen yourself.

Stay Tuned!

For our next episode, Marcus Neto is joining us again (and everyone rejoiced)! This time, Marcus will be discussing selling EE with Brad Parscale of DevDemon.

Check out our schedule for even more great topics we've lined up, and be sure you don't miss an episode:

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
