Building Responsive Layouts

A session at Responsive Web Design Summit

Tuesday 28th August, 2012

12:00pm to 1:00pm

You know what responsive web design is. You know why we do it. What you need to know, now, is how to do it.

In this session, you'll learn about two of the core components of responsive web design: fluid/liquid layouts and media queries.

We'll cover fluid and hybrid fixed-fluid layout techniques, tips, and tricks so that you can build robust, flexible layouts without pulling your hair out.

We'll then walk through adding media queries onto a fluid layout to make it fully responsive to a variety of screen sizes and devices. Even older versions of Internet Explorer will get some love with solutions to help them deal with your shiny new responsive layouts.
