Vitaly Friedman on Smart Front-End/Performance Techniques (June 26th, 9AM PDT, online workshop)

In this 3h online workshop, Vitaly Friedman (editor-in-chief of Smashing Magazine), will present practical 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.
