  2. 2. • Co-Founder of SPD Labs• SharePoint UI Developer• Based in Asheville, NC @spdlabs• Services – UX & Design – Content Strategy – Branding / Identity / Design
  3. 3. • Increasingly Variable Interaction – More Device Types – Mobile Devices – Scaling Up & Down – Unpredictable Bandwidth – Shift in Desired User Experience
  4. 4. The Shift• Mobile access as the default access point is on the rise• Mobile devices are taking over the landscape• The Social & Mobile Link
  5. 5. • Motivated by Change in Context – People experience the web differently – People have different expectations for… • What they want delivered on the web • When they want to access that content • How the content is delivered – Demanding users with more demands and lower tolerance than ever before
  6. 6. • Media Queries – Used to scope your styles• Flexible Grid-Based Layout• Flexible Images & Media – Preventing overflow
  7. 7. Media Type@media screen and (min-width: 1024px) { body { font-size: 100%; } Query}
  8. 8. • Flexible Dimensions & Type – Target ÷ Context = Result• Fluid Layout – Grid-based system• Flexible Images – img{ max-width:100%; }
  9. 9. • Build Up, Not Down• Design for Mobile Devices First• Forces Prioritization of Content• Drives Better Content Strategy – More Sustainable – Well Thought Out• Harness Mobile Platform Capabilities – Touch, GPS, etc.
  10. 10. • Translate your designs from one viewport to the next• Allows you to target the right content in the right context• Better user experience• Preferred over “mobile versions”
  11. 11. • Responsive Design is an approach and a work in progress.• Strategies & Principles Are Evolving• Statistics Show the Need for Mobile Strategy• Focus on Gathering User-Driven Results – If you build it, they will come and they will let you know what sucks!
  12. 12. Applying Responsive Design Techniques in SharePoint
  13. 13. • Not Responsive• Best Suited for “Portals”• Easy to Manage Content• Easy to Make Content Look Really Ugly!• Not Adaptive for Smaller Screens• OOTB has a Mobile Version Which is Only Good For Browsing List Items!
  14. 14. • Consists Of… – HTML – CSS – ASP.NET Master Pages – Page Layouts – jQuery/Javascript• Extending Functionality – Custom Web Parts – Custom User Controls – Branding Features
  15. 15. • Blueprint for Design & Layout• Includes – Static Text – HTML – Server Controls – ContentPlaceHolder Controls • Define regions of replaceable content within the Master Page
  16. 16. • Provides a fluid framework for all pages/page layouts in the site• References CSS3 stylesheet that uses media queries and relative sizing to make your content follow a fluid layout• References javascript, jQuery, HTML5 Shiv to support older IE Versions, etc.
  17. 17. • Context – What needs to be responsive and what doesn’t? – Who is this site for – Intranet/Extranet/Internet – Timeline & Budget• Depth – What site types do you need to support? – How much control over the UX do you have? • Revamping the way users interact with SharePoint should tie into your responsive design planning.
  18. 18. • Don’t expect to have the same SharePoint with responsiveness added.• Not everything should be responsive. – Users won’t be editing datasheet views on their mobile phones.• Not everything can be responsive right now. – SharePoint is not designed for content owners to manage the site from a mobile device. If you’re using SharePoint for DMS and Collaboration, it’s primarily a desktop application. – The UI functionality is not designed for touch screen interaction. – We will inevitably meet roadblocks that require creative workarounds and imperfect solutions. – Remember you are building a responsive site on SharePoint, not the responsive SharePoint platform.
  19. 19. • Narrow your focus. – Publishing Sites, Team Sites, Blogs• Let it be. – Leave as much of the inner workings alone as possible. • Settings pages, document management, datasheets. – For public-facing sites make the _layouts area of your site stick to v4.master • Nobody needs to access that outside desktop environment. Think of it as your Admin Panel
