Jonathan Stark

Responsive Web Design Bootcamp

Date: This event took place live on March 14 2013

Presented by: Jonathan Stark

Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.

Cost: Free

In this hands-on webcast presented by Jonathan Stark, author of 'Building Android Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript' and 'Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript', you'll learn why it is no longer safe to assume that visitors to your website are sitting in front of large monitors equipped with a keyboard and mouse. As smartphones overtake the desktop as the primary portal to the Web - and as new device types and interaction models continue to emerge - designers need to adopt future-friendly strategies that support a full range of user contexts with a single codebase.

What will be covered?

  • The "One Web" philosophy and benefits
  • Mechanics of media queries
  • Code organization and best practices
  • Adding support for adaptive images
  • Fallback techniques for older browsers

Who is this webcast for?

This webcast is for web designers and developers who are interested in creating mobile web sites and web apps. A working familiarity with standard HTML, CSS, and JavaScript would be very helpful but is not required.

NOTE: Jonathan Stark is presenting a series of webcasts that are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
