Artifact is a two-day, single-track conference for Designers adapting to the challenge of designing for a multi-device world. We'll be doing a Build Responsively and I'll be on a panel with Dan Mall and Yesenia Perez-Cruz. Also, I'm guessing we'll be hanging at The Ginger Man.
Front-End Design Conference is a yearly event in St. Petersburg, Florida bringing together some of the most innovative minds in our industry. It's a real honor to be able to be part of the conversation happening there. I'll be sharing about how to serve responsive styles, and you'll probably see me in the back taking notes during the rest of the sessions!
Breaking Development focuses on new, emerging techniques for web development and design for mobile devices. This is absolutely one of my favorite conferences happening right now, it's an honor to be participating!
A great mix of keynote presentations from some of the top minds in CSS and sessions presented by our peers in the trenches, CSS Dev Conf will be a fantastic few days in the Rocky Mountains. I'll be presenting a Build Responsively with a few of my crew, get your ticket now!
I'm so proud to be contributing on a site I've respected for quite a while now, the Web Standards Sherpa. Review number 23 is a look at how older sites can still benefit from responsive techniques.
For a while now we've been feeling that selecting a set of breakpoints and expecting them to work across an entire system of content is only a partial solution. In this piece, I'm exploring the idea that maybe breakpoints should be created when their needed for the specific atomic element that I'm styling as opposed to the system as a whole. Also, there are Matrix references.
I'm so excited to have written something that will actually be printed. The folks at .net magazine gave me the opportunity to share some of the thinking I've been doing on how to use responsive techniques on older sites. This is a tutorial-type article and the issue is packed with some great stuff. Many thanks to the wonderful Stephanie Rieger for her technical review and fantastic feedback.
After some additional experimentation, Matt and I put our thoughts down on best practices for writing media queries. There is still a lot of testing to do, but I think we're moving in the right direction.
Are off-canvas layouts a shiny new tool ripe for abuse? Just posing a quick question for us to consider.
An explanation of my 30,000 foot view of our industry's current state as it relates to responsive web design.
For centuries, we have shaped our layouts and typefaces according to the meaning of the content we're presenting. While this has traditionally been done on fixed-width paper canvases, we need to embrace the fact that the web is not fixed width. Content prototypes give us an opportunity see our content in its real habitat—the web—sooner.
Web designers and developers are always willing to scrap over terms like "responsive" and "adaptive." It's really the concepts behind these words that are important.
