Responsive Design: One Site, Many Devices

#UAD5 Usability, Accessibility and Design Track

102 C, Frontier Airlines Center


Responsive Design is an emerging technique that allows a single site to gracefully scale from the smallest mobile device to the largest desktop display. See examples of Responsive Design in action while learning about CSS media queries, fluid images and responsive layout approaches. Discover how this simple CSS approach to device optimization can play a significant role in your mobile strategy. This presentation will be accompanied by a live demo site and a host of linked examples, so be ready to get out your mobile device (from phone to laptop) and follow along.

He's the lead designer, UX specialist and usability researcher at Carleton College, and likes to whip up code in his spare time. Along with Nathan Dirks, he gave a well-received presentation on his HEWEB2012 topic at MinneWebCon 2012.
