The world of web design has been going crazy for responsive web design (RWD) recently. So if you've yet to work on your first responsive project, this meetup is for you. We intend on getting you up to speed!
Responsive web design involves having a single design that adapts to the device upon which it's being viewed - rather than creating separate sites and separate content strategies for different mobile devices. In this talk, Web Developer & Lead Designer for The United States District Court and CEO of Designs Drive, Mario Hernandez will show us how techniques like responsive web design can help us rethink existing strategies, explore new options, and evolve so we can create websites that look great everywhere. This meetup is designed to introduce responsive web design techniques to designers and coders. There will be some examples of actual code, but many theoretical considerations. It will be useful and accessible for anyone involved in web design.
