User: A Responsive Design Rewind

Speaker: Taylor Dewey, Senior User Interface Engineer, 10up

We're going to (be kind and) rewind the Responsive Web Design (RWD) technique. I'll explain the purpose of responsive design, implementation strategy, and challenges. We'll be covering theory and terminology with perhaps small dips into code for perspective, but you aren't expected to know or use CSS. This presentation will show lots of examples and will end with examples of responsive WordPress themes. Bring your smartphones, tablets, and laptops to bring up the examples on *your* device to see how well it responds.

    This Meetup was Great. Thanks again Taylor! I actually had an unexpected client call this morning and I no longer had to say "Uh, I'm not sure- can I call you back after talking to my developer?"

    I was able to confidently guide the conversation toward a mobile first strategy and media queries.

    Taylor Dewey was quite passionate about web design, responsive design and the WordPress platform. He knew the topic intimately and presented with gusto. There must've been 20 questions answered, so it was very interactive.

    Taylor did a great job of keeping the presentation accessible to relative newcomers and experienced developers alike.

    What 5 questions should I be asking/answering about how to monetize a reasonably popular hiking site without destroying its non-commercial appeal. If websites are to compete with traditional publishing, then how does one go about designing a site to be more engaging, and remunerative.

      I find your comments on the issue of commercialization most insightful. I look forward to talking to you about this in greater detail.about other

      Hey, Robert, will be good to see you. Solutions may be outside the scope of this talk, but it'll certainly be one of the things I bring up in challenges! There's some interesting stuff happening in the "server side responsive" area that you might look into. Outside of that, JS solutions which are pretty imperfect. Taking into account bandwidth in addition screen size is likely the next big foray of responsive. How much of that is client side vs server side will be interesting to see.

      October 11, 2013

    • Robert L.

      Thanks for the reply. I'm really looking forward to hearing what you have to say in this arena. It's definitely a fast moving target!
