It was just a little more than a year ago on May 25, 2010 that Ethan Marcotte wrote the seminal article titled Responsive Web Design that sent shockwaves through the web development industry from which we are just now experiencing the effects. Nothing has been more controversial and polarizing to so many different facets of the online industry. From designers to web developers to programers to content writers to marketers to mobile programers, all will be affected. Responsive Web Design will not only change how we build and view websites on all the new devices out there, this fundamentally changes how we approach web development. With WordPress being the most popular Content Management System on the web, its important for us to have this discussion now and figure out best practices to building great responsive websites. It won’t be whether “if” you decide to build a responsive website, it will be “when.” Get ready, this changes everything.
