HTML5 site of the month22
Jun

This month’s issue of .net magazine has awarded the recently reskinned Yell.com HTML5 site of the month!

HTML5 Site of the Month badge

As a front-end developer on the project I was quoted in the article as saying…

“The front-end dev team at Yell wanted to advance the coding standards, and moving to the HTML5 doctype was the first logical step. We made use of custom data attributes, placeholder attributes and local storage, all of which contributed to an improvement in the quality of our source code and the performance of our JavaScript. We also had the added benefit of being able to simplify our charset, style and script tags.” – Chris Bewick

This was an excellent project to work on and I am delighted with the reponse. Many thanks to @brucel for the great write-up and to @doodlemoonch for being, as always, a delight to work with.
