Trying to get on the phone with @British_Airways@twitter.com which insists that they have a facility to rebook our cancelled flight online, which does not work (it wants us to cancel and get a refund).

I can’t tell you how best to go static—only you can. But DO IT NOW. Performance isn’t just something to aspire to any more. This is not time for “well, this is as performant as our stack gets”. Right now, performance could literally be life-saving to a user. GET STATIC.

Too many sites are crashing as their CMSes buckle under the load of too many visitors seeking critical information. Too many sites’ frameworks are draining mobile batteries or shutting out older browsers as people seek critical information.

If you are in charge of a health-related web site, or a utility web site, or any site that has information people need right now: MAKE IT STATIC. As much as you can, convert pages to static HTML/CSS. Yes, even that part.

In light of the COVID-19 crisis, I've decided to stream my films for free to viewers stuck indoors, anywhere in the world. I'll be streaming a new movie every week, starting today with Helvetica. Stay safe and strong, we're gonna get through this.

Hey

How does (or: how can) a *designer* test their design for accessibility issues? As in, testing within design apps like Figma or Sketch or…

I’m a dev. I work with designers all the time. I’m curious if there are any design a11y auditing tools similar to dev?

There is no reason to freak out, but we do need to take the shelter-in-place order seriously. If you don't need to, don't leave the house, unless you're going on a hike or a run. Being outside to get some fresh air is totally fine!

I know the news is overwhelming for many in our community, so I wanted to explain @GavinNewsom@twitter.com's statewide shelter-in-place order. The summary: it's not as scary as it sounds. Read this thread to learn more.
