Jason Grigsby on When Responsive Design Meets the Real World (Sept. 17th 2014, Freiburg)

Quick Overview

Dispel your fears of media queries, image optimization, and multi-device testing. See how fast and freeing mobile-first, responsive web design can be right now.

With Jason’s help, you’ll work independently to convert a fixed-width desktop design to a responsive layout. You’ll then update it with a viewport metatag, learn to find natural breakpoints, and test its performance. He’ll also help you reorder CSS, modify it to scope images properly, do more testing, and convert media queries to ems.
