I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be teaching a workshop on responsive web design (RWD) for DC Web Women’s Code(Her) series, on August 14 at 6:00 p.m. in Washington, DC.
You have probably been wondering: What is this “responsive web design” thing that people keep talking about, and how is it different than the way we learned to make websites back in the good ol’ days?
Come to my workshop and find out the answer!
I’ll show you examples of websites that are currently using RWD to do awesome things, and explain how they’re doing it. We’ll talk about fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries. I’ll explain “responsive workflow” and tell you how you can adapt your design and development process to accommodate RWD.
The workshop is hands-on, so bring your laptop and we’ll go through an exercise of converting a fixed-width layout to a responsive layout. You’ll need to have at least a basic understanding of HTML and CSS to do this part. If you don’t have a laptop, don’t worry, you can look on with someone else.
And I saved the best part for last: there will be pizza! Come at 6:00 for the food, and I’ll start talking at 6:30.
The workshop will be at LivingSocial’s Hungry Academy space near McPherson Square. You need to register ahead of time so go do that right now before you forget, or before it fills up and you miss the most awesome RWD event of the year.
