Aaron Gustafson Biography

Aaron Gustafson has been working to make the web more equitable for nearly three decades now.

As a web designer, developer, and consultant, Gustafson has worked with a number of notable companies in the tech sector. In 2015, he joined Microsoft as a web standards advocate to work closely with their browser team, where he established the developer-engagement platform the Web We Want and worked to chart the future of Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) as a member of the W3C’s Web Applications Working Group, an editor of several PWA-related specifications, and author of numerous feature proposals. In 2022, Gustafson shifted his focus to leading Microsoft’s AI for Accessibility grant program, where he identifies and funds innovations in accessibility on a global scale.

Gustafson loves to share his knowledge and insights in written form. His three-part series on progressive enhancement for A List Apart is a perennial favorite and his seminal book on the subject, Adaptive Web Design, earned him numerous accolades and honors. When he’s not writing, Gustafson is frequently on the road presenting at conferences and running workshops across the globe.

Aaron Gustafson Speaking Topics

  • Adapting to Reality

    After enjoying more than a decade of relative stability in designing for the ‘desktop’ web, smartphones had to come along and throw a wrench in the works. It seemed that in an instant, everything changed and nothing was certain any more. The truth is, though, nothing was ever certain.

    One of the web’s major strengths is its ability to adapt, to travel anywhere and everywhere in service of its users. All those years we were the ones restraining it with our desire to create a single monolithic experience. But experience is not monolithic. Every person is different, and we all bring our unique perspectives, experiences, and capabilities to the table. A one-size-fits-all approach rarely fits anyone well. When we embrace that, our designs, products, and experiences will be all the better for it."
