From WordCamp Ottawa, April 27, 2013.
Your website needs to look good and work well on any size screen, all the way from mobile phones to widescreen monitors. Responsive web design is the best way to make sure that it does, but just choosing a WordPress theme with “responsive” in the name isn’t enough. In this session, you’ll find out how to pick a good responsive theme (and what makes some themes more responsive than others) by learning what’s in the CSS that makes a site responsive. You’ll learn how to make sure any plugins you add to the site are also responsive. You’ll find out what else you can customize to make your WordPress site work better on mobile devices, as well as how to make your site future-friendly to address devices that haven’t been invented yet.
