We’re entering a new era where an increasing number of devices with wildly divergent features -- including phones, tablets, game consoles, and TVs -- are connected to the Internet. As the way people access the Internet changes, there is an urgent need to rethink how we use the web to communicate. This doesn't mean creating separate solutions for each device but rather preparing our existing content to meet this increasingly unpredictable future. Dave Olsen and Doug Gapinski will share and examine examples that show how responsive design will help institutions rethink and adjust for the future-friendly web. Primary topics that are covered are: understanding the reality of web development today, example RWD design patterns, and understanding how to test and optimize the performance of your RWD website.
