Smashing Online Workshop: Vitaly Friedman on Responsive Design: Smart Design Patterns and UX Techniques (June 25th, 9AM PDT)

In this 3h online workshop, Vitaly Friedman (editor-in-chief of Smashing Magazine), will present practical design techniques, clever tricks and useful strategies you need to be aware of when working on any responsive design project. Most techniques are borrowed from mid-size and large-scale real-life projects, such as large eCommerce projects, online magazines and Web applications. We won't cover the basics, but rather advanced and innovative examples of RWD in action.
