You already know the basics of responsive design, now learn more about some of the techniques and tools that make it easier to create a responsive website: frameworks, navigation patterns, CSS preprocessors like Sass/LESS, responsive images, responsive data tables, and polyfills.

This session will explain how each of these resources can help you build a better responsive website, and we'll delve into the code to see how everything works. Responsive design isn't as difficult as it seems: the secret is taking advantage of all the resources that are available to you instead of trying to solve every problem yourself.

Enter the building under the large sign that says "Ivory" and walk by the big blue crab then take an immediate left. You can take the water taxi over from Fells Point (landing #8) to landing #10 or you can drive over and park in any spot marked "Visitor" or in the "F" lot.

See below map for detail. The green is where the designated visitor spaces are. Those are marked "visitor" on the pavement. Watch out for 'reserved' or handicap. The purple shaded in area is one of the employee lots which is available for us to park in, since it's after hours). The Blue marker next to the building is the entrance to the meetup space.
