"Responsibly developing responsive sites."
This talk was delivered at the Responsive Web Design edition of Bristol Skillswap.
A big thank you to all the
Skillswappers who came to
Going Beyond Code
and participated in my
Wild Wild Web talk.
New adventure, new challenges
My first RWD was only last year (Aug 2012)
Fluid + breakpoints
Fluid is nothing new
Breakpoints = evolution
There is no spoon (device-agnostic)
I love simple
Large sites & teams (cxpartners)
SASS is invaluable (variables for breakpoints)
Importance of modularity (build + test)
Respond in any environment
Grouped vs inline breakpoints
Piece together jigsaw
It takes longer!
Firefox vs The World:
Zooming = resizing?
Beware of BRD (Browser Resize Disorder)
Mobile-first vs desktop-first (real life)
Responsive media (img, video, table)
Responsive fonts (vw, vh, vmin, FitText.js)
Grid systems, ems & calculators
Is responsive always right? (FreeAgent, GoCardless)
Mobile vs responsive (web perf, Andy Davies)
Don’t go mad (but do be eager)
Keep it simple
Mobile-ﬁrst (where possible)
Flags in the sand (thanks Pete)
Consider the context, remember the human
Don’t reinvent wheel (tried & tested)
Test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test, test...
