Moving Swiftly: The story of how BBC News fell in love with Responsive Web Design

A session at Breaking Development 2012: Dallas

Tuesday 25th September, 2012

2:00pm to 3:00pm (CST)

BBC News relaunched its mobile website this Spring. Built using responsive design techniques, it will eventually be used to provide BBC News to mobile, tablet and desktop. The new architecture is built around giving users as fast an experience as possible, and supporting all types of devices while giving a tailored, app-like experience for smartphones.

In this presentation you will learn how a tier-1 website like BBC News (6 million pages, 20 million users a day, 40 types of content pages) has decided to go responsive, and all the steps it took to get to launch. You'll also learn about the ongoing work that is happening to push the responsive product completely onto the desktop.
