It is no longer safe to assume that visitors to your website are sitting in front of a large monitor equipped with a keyboard and mouse. As smartphones overtake the desktop as the primary portal to the Web - and as new device types and interaction models continue to emerge - designers need to adopt future-friendly strategies that support a full range of user contexts with a single codebase.

What will be covered?


  • The "One Web" philosophy and benefits
  • Mechanics of media queries
  • Code organization and best practices
  • Adding support for adaptive images
  • Fallback techniques for older browsers

Who is this webcast for?

This webcast is for web designers and developers who are interested in creating mobile web sites and web apps. A working familiarity with standard HTML, CSS, and JavaScript would be very helpful but is not required.
