Scale and adapt: A story of how we built Responsive BBC News

A session at Mobilism 2013

Thursday 16th May, 2013

12:00pm to 12:50pm (AMT)

Life used to be easy. We created sites to work on a few browsers and when we had time we asked the new guy to build a half baked mobile version. Then the device explosion ruined our cozy happy dev life.

My talk will discuss how BBC News met this challenge at scale.

  • How we support as many devices as possible using responsive design
  • Why performance is key to our success and how we managed to keep the site lean
  • How we scale to serve BBC News to the masses
  • What tools we use to help us along the way
