The Tech You'll Work With:
You don't have to know all these things, but you should be excited to learn and use them. (Or perhaps even advocate for something you can show is better.)

  • Join knowledgeable product managers to turn great ideas into experiences that readers will genuinely appreciate.
  • Be comfortable talking about code: yours, your colleague's, and that open source project that makes life so much easier.
  • Identify and address bottlenecks to make sure every webpage goes from request to render in a few short seconds.
  • Create sites that are both accessible and forward-compatible through the healthy use of Web Standards.
  • Frameworks: Know when they save you time, when they get in the way, and how to spot frameworks that aren't worth the trouble.
  • Use Progressive Enhancement to take advantage of new techniques without leaving our audience behind.
  • Know how to get the job done today, while you're on the lookout for a better way for us to work tomorrow.
