Ruining the User Experience

A presentation at SXSW Interactive 2007 in in Austin, TX, USA by Aaron Gustafson

With the exploding popularity of DOM Scripting, Ajax and JavaScript in general, it's important to know what to do—and what not to do—when dealing with these technologies.This session will walk you through several real-world examples, pointing out common mistakes that hinder usability, accessibility, and search while teaching you ways to avoid them altogether, either programmatically or simply by altering the way you think about JavaScript-based interactivity.

Presented with Sarah B. Nelson.
