Phil Hawksworth

Web geek, skier, coffee lover, bad dancer. Technical Director at R/GA

Phil has been building experiences on the web since the late 90s. Working now as a Technology Director at R/GA in London, he works with clients like Google, Nike, Beats by Dre, and Dyson to create web experiences.

He's a vocal supporter of things like unobtrusive JavaScript, open web standards and tasty browser shenanigans. Some say that his Instagram feed contains more photos of cats than might be considered healthy for a grown man, but he's convinced that he doesn't have a problem.

Static Sites go all Hollywood

Wednesday, 10:45

  • Future of the Web
  • HTML / CSS

The popularity of building web sites with static site generators is on the rise. Their reduced complexity, easier compliance, cheaper hosting, and other benefits are getting people’s attention, but they do have limits.

This talk will explore how we can break through some of those limits with the use of a new breed of hosted tools and services. We’ll look at practical examples of how a static site generator can help deliver a modern web development workflow, support a living styleguide, and also pack the kind of dynamic punch that you’d only think possible from bigger application stacks.
