Please note this meetup happens on Monday instead of the usual Wednesday and is hosted at SHIFT - Boutique Workspaces.
Responsive web design is an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). Responsive web design uses CSS3 media queries, (an extension of the @media rule) to auto-configure the layout. Ethan Marcotte coined the term in an article - http://www.alistapart.com/articles/responsive-web-design/ - in May 2010. Refresh Denver is co-hosting this event with the Denver LAMP meetup.
What is Twitter Bootstrap?
A small group of Twitter employees set out to improve the team's internal analytical and administrative tools, and two years later it is a full fledged front-end toolkit for rapidly developing web applications that is gaining popularity. It was released in Aug. 2011 - https://dev.twitter.com/blog/bootstrap-twitter - and version 2 came out in early 2012 - https://dev.twitter.com/blog/say-hello-to-bootstrap-2
What's so great about it?
To see Bootstrap in action, check out this - http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/examples/hero.html - example...first maximize the page, then slowly drag your mouse to make the page more narrow until the width is 320 pixels...the page elements should automatically reconfigure several times.
Does this meetup need any volunteers?
We are currently looking for co-presenters with experience in the subject, as well as volunteers to help with various aspects of the meeting (ie. videotaping the presentation). The meetup will be presented by Chris Baril, who holds a Computer Science B.S. degree from the University of British Columbia and has been developing websites since the late 90s.
