Responsive Web Design
Ethan Marcotte is an independent designer/developer who is passionate about beautiful design, elegant code, and the intersection of the two. Over the years his clientele has included New York Magazine, the Sundance Film Festival, the Boston Globe, and the W3C.
Ethan coined the term “responsive web design” to describe a new way of designing for the ever-changing Web and, if given the chance, will natter on excitedly about it—he even went so far as to write a book on the topic. A popular and experienced speaker, he is also the coauthor of Jeffrey Zeldman’s Designing With Web Standards (3rd Edition), and a contributing writer to Dan Cederholm’s Handcrafted CSS.
Ethan lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and would like to be an unstoppable robot ninja when he grows up. Beep.
Responsive Design: Beyond Our Devices
Responsive designers now focus on patterns: reusable design modules we stitch together into larger layouts. But how should those patterns adapt, and when? And how do we design with them? We’ll look at answers to those questions, and start moving our design practices beyond the screens in front of us.
Responsive Design: From Pages To Pattern Libraries (1/2 Day)
You figured out this whole “responsive design” thing, but now you’re hearing talk of “design systems” and “pattern libraries.” Before you throw your “laptop” out a “window,” come to this mini-workshop! We’ll look at strategies for translating your designs into reusable patterns, and see how different teams put those patterns to work for them. We’ll also talk about different software options for building pattern libraries, and figure out strategies for choosing the best one for you.
