We're Baaaack! And we're still responsive . . .(Note new location at St. Peters)

Let’s Get Responsive! (…and improve your user relationships)

"The website should be viewable on any device!" This is a common phrase heard nowadays, but how do we shrink a website viewed on a desktop screen to a 4 inch screen? Let alone how do we make the website flexible to fit different screen resolutions with flexible images? And what's with all those media queries?!?!

Responsive Design websites respond to browser environments with a fluid layout. Websites are able to respond to any given screen respectively in various sizes. Responsive Design may seem a bit intimidating at first but it's easier than you think.

True it's not the same way websites have been created in previous years but moving forward with responsive design will help increase your target audience. In this session we'll learn how to setup and design for a responsive layout. We will also cover responsive images, utilizing white space, best color practices and fluid web fonts along with informational tools and tips.

Courtney Jordan, Web Designer/Developer at NYS ITS Health and Human Services Cluster, will show you how to setup and design for a responsive layout. Courtney will also address responsive images, utilizing white space, best color practices and fluid web fonts along with informational tools and tips. 

And Help Us As We Move Forward
We'll also have some organizational talk (before or after) since we're reconnoitering after a long layoff to plan future directions for the group. Planned  future meeting dates are Wed June 25th, Wed Oct 8th, and Wed December 10th.

    Great to see the group back in action after a brief layoff. Lots of good info, insights, perspectives and some very funny observations. Thanks to Courtney for setting the table with her stellar presentation on RWD. And to Kristen and Jason for organizing the venue and running the meeting. And to everyone who attended and participated. I think we're all a little smarter today because of it. This is a really important group for bringing it all together with developers, designers, content specialists, educators, researchers - you name it. No tunnel vision here. Let's keep the fires burning.
