Responsive web design (RWD) is all the rage, but you may be wondering how to get started, where it came from, and how to approach it. In fact, you may not be sure if RWD is right for you or your projects. This talk discusses these topics and more. We'll begin by clarifying what RWD is, its origins, and how to approach it. We'll then move onto some important technical issues that you need to aware of when achieving responsiveness. The overall goal of this talk is to help you grasp the important frame of mind needed when achieving responsiveness, with a dash of code mixed in to help you get started.
Presenter: Matt Thomas
His dot-com career started in 2000 when he joined a start-up venture in Connecticut. Shortly thereafter, he founded betweenbrain to aid his colleagues and local businesses in need of unique problem solving and technology services.
After discovering Joomla in 2006, he joined the Joomla community and soon thereafter re-aligned his business efforts to focus primarily on Joomla services and solutions. In early 2010, he formally joined the JBS to continue his efforts of giving back to the Joomla! Community and help empower others with technology so that they can independently maintain and update their websites.
Matt works one-on-one with his clients to carefully develop appropriate solutions complimented by client education. He is an avid evangelist of Open Source software and has been known to “extend” his presentations into mini-workshops when given the chance.
