Working on the Web
My goal with any new site I build is meet the following criteria:
- Accessible by default with semantic markup that can be logically followed by keyboard users and read by screen readers.
- Optimized for mobile devices first, but responsive enough to work on almost any other screen.
- Eliminate as much cruft as possible to make sure the site loads on any connection.
