The modern web is an incredible platform for building powerful applications. You can create fluid user interfaces, deeply integrated with a user's device capabilities, functioning regardless of network connectivity, with the same code serving a vast array of devices and platforms. Or rather... that's the dream. Advanced functionality is more challenging to implement, the sheer variety of browsers is a compatibility nightmare, and of course keeping up with breakneck pace of development is a full time job in itself. While this hasn't stopped people creating content for the web but it has had a significant effect on the quality. Pages continue to get heavier and slower, eating up your bandwidth and battery without a matching jump in value. It doesn't have to be this way though - and that's where you come in. Drupal has the platform, ecosystem, and community to enable creators with the ability to create excellent experiences by default. Together we'll look at how we can take the new, shiny aspects of the web to ensure that they're not complicated gimmicks but raise the bar for quality in a way that anyone can use.
