EXPERTALKS: Sep 2013 – Responsive Web Design

Try this..

Open www.microsoft.com on your laptop. Now open the same site on your mobile. How does the same website retain its look and feel on 2 such different devices? It’s because of its Responsive Web Design (RWD).

Nowadays, any website gets accessed on a multitude of devices, be it desktops, laptops, TVs, phones, tablets...or that latest word in Oxford dictionary... phablets.

In such a scenario, instead of creating different versions of a website for different devices, wouldn't you rather create a single site which “responds” to its rendering device & adjusts its designs accordingly?

Responsive Web Design helps you achieve this… and much more!!!

RWD is more than just adjustable screen resolutions, auto-resizable images or text. It’s a whole new approach to user experience and design!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

LEARNING FOR PARTICIPANTS:

Techniques – Using Adaptive & Fluid layouts to create responsive designs.

The bigger picture – Responsiveness in terms of User Experience (UX), user journeys etc.

The next steps in Responsive Web Design, “mobile-first” approach etc.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

WORKSHOP:

Participants will take a sample web-page template & convert it from fixed design to fluid design to adaptive design to, finally, a fully responsive design... :-)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

DEMO:

We'll demo a responsive website we've recently created in one of our projects.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

PRE-REQUISITES:

Get your laptops with your favourite editor installed. You should have basic understanding of HTML & CSS.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

      I am Intrest to come, Can i come?

      September 24, 2013

    • Mayank S.

      Hi Rakesh.... since you are on the waiting list (...no. 20...) at this point of time, it seems difficult for you to get an entry for this session. However, we do have a YouTube channel that will give you a good idea of the topic.... so you wouldn't be missing the session much... :-)

      September 24, 2013

  • Rakesh b.

    How to swap div ?

    September 24, 2013

    • Mayank S.

      Hi Rakesh. Good morning. It would be useful for you to send me your question via email rather than this forum .... :-) ..and I also request you to elaborate the question a little more...

      September 24, 2013

  • Mayank S.

    Hi All,

    I have incorporated an automatic Waiting List for this event.

    Now you can queue up in this wait-list and as soon as someone backs out of attending the event, you will automatically get RSVPed in.

    September 12, 2013

  • Dheeren P.

    Please consider me..for that...I am definitely coming..I do not see the RSVP enabled though

    September 12, 2013

    • Mayank S.

      Hi Dheeren.... unfortunately that ticket has been booked already... :-(... that's why you saw the RSVP link disabled... But don't worry... more cancellations are certain...

      September 12, 2013

  • Mayank S.

    1 spot is available now... book your seat now... :-)

    I will be incorporating a waiting-list from next Meetup onwards...

    September 12, 2013

    • Dheeren P.

      Please consider me..for that...I am definitely coming..I do not see the RSVP enabled though

      September 12, 2013

  • Mayank S.

    Hi folks,

    Its heartening to see such enthusiasm for this topic [...although it is a debatable one... :-)...]

    Seeing such response, I'm tempted to add more tickets. But the venue for this event (the EE office) is small and 70 participants completely maxes out our capacity... :-(
    So it's difficult to add more tickets now.

    However, I've always seen quite a few cancellations occur as the event nears. If you are a member of EXPERTALKS, you will get automatic email notifications as soon as a spot opens up.

    Based on previous experience, I'm certain that more spots will open pretty soon. Just be alert... :-)

    Meanwhile, if we decide to add more tickets, you will be the first to know.

    Cheers !!!
    Mayank

    • Ganesh R.

      I'm Interested tell me if seats are available....

      September 11, 2013

  • Ganesh R.

    I'm interested in Responsive Web Design, Please tell how to Register.

    September 11, 2013

  • Sachin

    Gosh! I am late... Please let me know in case of a vacant seat.

    September 11, 2013

  • Mayank S.

    Hi All,

    After a lot of deliberation, we have decided not to add further tickets for this event... :-(

    Ours is a small office and managing even 70 participants would be a challenge, forget more... Those who've attended previous events can vouch for this.. :-)

    Considering other venues for this event was also difficult as our "workshop" based model relies on reliable network infrastructure. We're more comfortable doing the session here than anywhere else.

    Therefore, I request all participants who have RSVPed Yes for this event to double check their itinerary for the event day (...28th Sep, 10 am to 2 pm...).

    If you are uncertain about making it for the event, kindly RSVP No so that others (...who are waiting...) can get a chance to participate.

    And don't worry.... If you miss out on this event, our YouTube channel and upcoming blog will enlighten you on this topic.

    Once again, we're thankful for your enthusiasm towards this event... and apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    September 11, 2013

  • Dheeren P.

    I am interested too and I think I did RSVP..Please do let me know as well if I can join?

    September 11, 2013

    • Mayank S.

      Hi Dheeren... I'm afraid I can't see your RSVP for this event. Are you sure you have RSVPed for the same ?

      September 11, 2013

  • Sarika

    I am Intrested, but no place :( .... let me know if possible to add me.

    September 6, 2013

    • Mayank S.

      Will let you know Sarika... if there are cancellations (..and there usually are...), you'd be able to get a seat...

      September 6, 2013

  • Aniruddha V.

    I'm late to grab a seat. :'(

    September 4, 2013

    • Mayank S.
