The Big Picture: Responsive Images in Action

A session at Developer Conference 2013

Thursday 7th November, 2013

2:00pm to 2:45pm (CET)

Although responsive designs are already state-of-the-art in web development the whole trend still is in its infancy. When it comes to images, a lot of responsive websites just load the same big image on every viewport. Because of this, people judge responsive design as being detrimental to performance. New markup elements like <picture> are under discussion right now but what are the alternatives, what is the best to use right now, and how do they work? I will lead you through the different techniques and polyfills and show you their pros and cons. After this talk you should be able to choose the best fitting responsive image solution for your project.
