Next Steps for Responsive Design

A session at Breaking Development 2012 :focus on Responsive

Monday 4th June, 2012

1:15pm to 2:15pm (CST)

The explosion of smartphones and tablets has caused us to radically change the way we think about publishing content on the web, but the "mobile web" is a fast-moving target. With an ever-growing roster of devices already in circulation—each with their own unique set of features, browser quirks, and screen sizes—the idea of a single codebase that "just works everywhere" may be starting to feel like a pipe dream.

Responsive web design provides us with an incredibly powerful set of tools for handling uncertainty—and when paired with the principles of progressive enhancement, we're well on our way to a fully device-agnostic approach to the web. In this presentation we'll discuss strategies for handling complex layouts, managing image and video assets, and most important of all: a vast landscape of unknowns.
