Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New devices and platforms emerge daily. Browsers iterate at a remarkable pace. Faced with this volatile landscape we can either struggle for control or we can embrace the inherent flexibility of the web.

 

Responsive design is not just another technique–it is the beginning of the maturation of a medium and a fundamental shift in the way we think about the web.

 

Implementing Responsive Design is a practical examination of how this fundamental shift affects the way we design and build our sites. Readers will learn how to:

  • Build responsive sites using a combination of fluid layouts, media queries, and fluid media
  • Adopt a responsive workflow from the very start of a project
  • Enhance content for different devices
  • Use feature-detection and server-side enhancement to provide a richer experience

Synopsis:

Users are accessing online content on a multitude of different devices, from mobile phones to desktop computers. This book takes a deep dive into all the considerations that go into a responsive project in order to provide a great user experience. It discusses the techniques required to make a bulletproof responsive site, and also looks at what we need for standards and tools to evolve into in order to simplify the methods of implementation.
