But most of these projects don't take the whole picture into account, and lose sight of what really matters from a conversion's point of view. Learn when responsive web design is the right tool and when it's the worst, and how to integrate it with other techniques.

In this webcast led by Maximiliano Firtman you'll learn:

  • Why Responsive Web Design is a great tool in some situations
  • Why it is the worst tool in some other scenarios
  • How to mix it with other techniques to increase the performance while still keeping a responsive website
