Free Networking & Keynote Speech Event

Leading Responsive Web Design (RWD) professionals from across the industry get together and discuss the current best practices of RWD and present critical viewpoints and insights.

Schedule:

18:00 - Networking & Reception

18:30 – Our guest speakers take to the floor and share their Responsive Web Design (RWD) insights.

20:00 - Q+A and Networking

With the growing popularity of common CSS/JS responsive frameworks such as Bootstrap and Foundation, developers might think that this is a perfect solution for easily creating beautiful responsive websites.

This talk explains why you probably want to avoid them and why creating your own truly responsive solution can be a better choice.

We will talk about performance, flexibility, mainainability, standarisation and control over our code.
We will also explore the accessibility options and features of responsive websites.

Who should Attend?

This event is for anyone looking to get ahead in learning and understanding Responsive Web Design. We expect to see designers and developers from across the industry with a variety of backgrounds and skill sets, all of which who could add to a healthy conversation and debate.

Even if you are a beginner, or even if RWD isn't your forte, you should definitely come along!
