The trends and next steps of RWD

A session at State of the Browser 2013

Saturday 20th April, 2013

2:00pm to 2:35pm (GMT)

Since the term Responsive Web Design was first coined by Ethan Marcotte back in 2010, we have seen a number of common trends and conventions in our designs. In this session, Ben explores these trends and discusses how as a community we can start thinking outside the single-column and take our mobile UX to the next level.
