Intro to Responsive Web Design


Websites are no longer viewed on computer screens alone. These days, people access content on smartphones, tablets to desktop.

Designing responsively allows for website content be seen from any device. In this class, you'll learn how to build a responsive website. We'll cover best practices, common design patterns, and code.

Wednesdays, September 10th, 17th, 24th and October 1st

This class is a 4-part series spanning four weeks from 6:30pm -8:30pm. (Your payment covers the whole series.)

All attendees should have intermediate HTML & CSS knowledge, and should have a laptop with HTML editing software installed (preferably Sublime Text - and it's free!). All the exercises on Codecademy's Web Fundamentals course should be familiar material. Please go through all the exercises before the first class.

Your TA's for this class series will be: Allen Tseng, Meg Broughton and Anne Kainic!

    Hi there,

    I had attended this workshop for less than an hour after realizing that I was too advanced for it. :-(
    I wasn't sure how to go about processing a refund, or a credit for a future class.

    Hi. I'm an General Assembly Alum. Can I use the alum discount for this workshop? Thanks.

    Mat Marquis will be featured in September's Refresh Boston. I highly recommend this event, and meeting this speaker, for anyone who is learning RWD or hope to meet some awesome names in the industry. Fresh Tilled Soil is an awesome company and the Refresh Boston events are a wonderful way to network.

    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/refresh-boston-mat-marquis-of-bocoup-on-responsive-images-tickets-12655028531

    Registration requested and 50 spots available. Thursday, September 18th in Watertown MA.

    I will be out of town for the first meeting. Is there anyway that I could still take the class? Like maybe getting the notes or exercises some point before the second meeting?

    Is there a chance this class will be offered again in the future? Wish I could take it but one of the dates is my expected delivery date! Haha.

    • Elizabeth L.

      Yes. This class scheduled as regularly as some of our other Introductory classes, but we will have it again. :)
