About this event

What's the big deal about Responsive Design?

The big deal is that there are now 1.75 billion smartphone users worldwide. Somewhere, someone is using their smartphone to book a flight because they missed their connection; check their account balance before making a purchase; find the closest urgent care center. And someone is at their wit's end after pinching, zooming, and panning all over the website just to complete the simplest task - because it was designed for the desktop. 

Responsive design helps end this madness and makes websites easier to use, on whatever device a website is viewed on. This workshop will provide a basic understanding of responsive design from concept to code, and give you the tools and resources to create a responsive website. 

PREREQUISITES: Participants should have a basic understanding of HTML & CSS, enough to be comfortable editing it and inspecting it in the browser.

Snacks & drinks will be provided. 

INSTRUCTORS:

This workshop will be taught by Aisha Blake and Leeann Drees.
