This month our topic is Working with jQuery:
Responsive Design and jQuery Mobile with Troy Miles
"Mobile First!", is the new cry of web designers worldwide. But how do you do it? Do you have to scrap all of your current web skills? Is it magic created by wizard-like designers which could never be understood by mere mortals? Believe it or not with the combination of jQuery Mobile and CSS3 Media Queries, you can easily create a site which looks good on phone, tablet, or desktop.
In this talk, Troy will show how to build a simple responsively designed web site using jQuery Mobile version 1.3.1. He will begin with a design for mobile, expand it to support tablet in both landscape and portrait modes, and finally show how to take advantage of the desktop's big screen. We will also discuss some of the pitfalls of responsive design and potential work-arounds for them.
All of the code and slides will be available after the talk.

Parking and Location
Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for $2. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.
