Brace yourselves – responsive images are coming

After 2 years of community effort, we’ve finally reached the stage where a native responsive images solution is right around the corner. Major browsers and the RICG are working hand in hand on the picture element specification, and implementations are under way.

In this talk we will discuss the various use cases the specification handles, the matching syntax for each one, do’s and don’ts when it comes to polyfilling, and the state of current implementation efforts.
