Hi everyone,

Happy New Year.  Hope you all had an enjoyable holiday.  Now that we've been back to reality - work and school, let's start our monthly meetup.

About the presentation: You will go on a journey of discovery, exploring the some of the details around Responsive Design. Understand what it is and what it is not. This presentation is focused more on the functional side of the Design (the business drivers), but there will be a little technical exploration towards the end.

7:45 - 8:00 pm: Q&A session
