The Importance of Structure
- Also, in terms of file structures, it gives you an idea of how you might structure your files. The idea of layers is useful to consider when building a file structure which might house many components but needs to be easily accessible by you to use.
- It is also useful in considering building designs that are as accessible as possible both in terms of accessibility (in terms of disability) a website needs a simple structure to enable those using screen-readers or other assistive technology to use the site effectively.
- In terms of literal access, some people may be using weak internet connections or browsing through older technology which is going to struggle to support complicated websites (for example, Gmail basic HTML version)
- I like that with ‘progressive enhancement’ you don’t have to alienate users who want more complex features but you ensure that you get the basics down first.
