Life used to be easy. We created sites to work on a few browsers and when we had time we asked the new guy to build a half baked mobile version. Then the device explosion ruined our cozy happy dev life. My talk will discuss how the BBC met this challenge.

- How we support as many devices as possible using responsive design.
- How we're using a sprinkle of Symfony2 components in our Zend world.
- How we scale to serve BBC News to the masses.
- What tools we use to help us along the way.
