Track: Web & HTML5; Audience: Intermediate

With the advent of the new Retina MacBook Pro, a new paradigm of HiDPI PC displays has started. As a result of this, a new set of requirements for creating and formatting visual content for these devices will start to become mainstream.

Based off several talks on Web Design from WWDC, this presentation will be around how to create websites that will look pixel-perfect on both standard display monitors and HiDPI monitors such as that of the new Retina MacBook Pro. This would include the methodologies behind creating such websites with new HTML5 and CSS3 standards, tips for testing it out on your current hardware, as well as general best practices to ensure stunning visual results.
