The Basics! Learning the Essentials to Design Responsively

After a year of successful year of events.... We are going back to the basics-  giving designers the basics to design Responsively...from the freelance to the design community..

Presenting:  Clarissa Peterson,  Author of upcoming Responsive Web Design Book ( O'Reilly Media)



 

 

 

 

 

 

Learn how to build a responsive website, or make your existing site responsive, by using CSS to create a fluid grid, make your images flexible, and add media queries that allow the site to respond to the device it's being viewed on. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommended.

Clarissa Peterson is a freelance web/UX designer & developer. Before setting off on her own, she spent 10 years managing websites at various nonprofits in Washington, DC. She’s now working from the road while on an indefinite roadtrip (16 states and 2 provinces so far).Clarissa is currently writing a book on responsive design for O’Reilly, scheduled to be published in mid-2013. You can find her online atclarissapeterson.com and @clarissa.

    Thanks Matt for putting the time into running RWD NYC. Thanks Meetup for providing the great space, beer & pizza, and post-talk tour of their offices. Finally, thanks Clarissa for a great talk. As others have noted: Clarissa's presentation was at the right skill level for what was advertised, yet likely beneficial to those with a more-than-basic understanding of RWD. Best of luck on the completion of your book!

    A big thanks to Clarissa and to Meetup for this one! What a great way to start 2013 ( The Year of Responsive Design) I was just in a meeting today and the media company asked if Responsive was too early! They need to come and listen to Clarissa. We all are excited for the book that is needed to tell the story.

    We hope we can have Clarissa back for part2,3,4... on the other 3 hours of stuff she said she could present if we had the time....! Thanks.

    Clarissa was a wonderful presenter. She helped to put into context the odds and end I had gleaned about responsive design and pointed the way to a lot more. I look forward to learning more on her site.

    It was a great event planned out with an excellent host and speaker. It was very impressive to see enthusiastic entrepreneurs! I am an accountant who works with startups to set up accounting systems and manage them along with business tax issues. Please contact me at [masked] if you have any questions.

    Good. Nice refresher on what I knew, and filled in some holes on what I didn't!

    Great job, Clarissa! The presentation was simple enough for a general audience but informed enough for those of us who have already implemented some of these techniques. The Q&A was solid as well.
