For decades, every networked computing device has had a graphical web browser installed by default. With the rise of mobile computing, wearable tech, and the Internet of Things, this is no longer a safe assumption. Jonathan Stark explores what web professionals can do to thrive in a world where the browser is declining in relevance.

Topics include:

  • 6 skills that won’t go out of style for at least a decade
  • How to succeed in an industry that changes almost daily
  • Why the browser is declining in relevance (and why it’s no big deal)
  • What the digital landscape will look like in the next few years
  • Where the Web is going
