Bootstrapping Web Pages for Accessibility and Performance

This item is a Paper in the Developers track.

Full text not available from this repository.


In this talk, I present a technique called Web Bootstrapping, a process by which an accurate collection of only those static resources and metadata necessary for a unique experience be delivered passively, by the most performant means possible. In further contrast to existing methodologies, rather than focus on the web client's identity or version, this approach determines resources based on capability, form factor and platform by collecting the often-immutable attributes of the client. Bootstrapping allows for rule-based, externalized, server-side configuration, further promoting progressive enhancement and client performance.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
