Sure thing, it’s 2021! It better be mobile-friendly. We’re coding with touch events in mind and making media queries our pals. Swipe gestures? Those are a must. It’s all about crafting a smooth experience, no matter the device. Responsive design’s the golden rule here.
Videos? Absolutely. Picture this: instead of static images, you’ve got these moving pictures bringing life to your story. Embed those video elements within carousel items, tweak some settings, and voila – motion galore. Just keep an eye on page load times, alright?

SEO-friendly you say? Embed those alt attributes, keep your

Dynamic updates without a reload, that’s the jazz. Fetch new content via AJAX, update the DOM seamlessly, and keep transitions smooth. It’s all about making those changes under the hood while the audience remains none the wiser.
