Join the 30-DAY CHALLENGE: "You Don't Know JS Yet"

Alex Russell works for Google on the Chrome team and is the lead of Project Fugu which focuses on Web Capabilities and Progressive Web Apps. Alex leads the JavaScript Jabber panel in a discussion of writing less JavaScript and focusing on performance and functionality on low bandwidth connections and low performance phones. Because accessibility is downstream, now, of performance, he argues that we need to focus on performance to make applications that give a good experience on lower end phones and connections.
