Responsive Design

screen_resolutions

As we have discussed in class last week, throughout the semester we will try to adapt responsive design as a general principle for all screen based presentations. It is more of an understanding rather then being an advance technology. It does not require any more skills then you already can do with HTML/CSS however the coding style needs to be absorbed and practised over and over again. Also here is a link to a book titled “Responsive Web Design”, please download and skim through until Tuesday.

Also please go through these two tutorials. First one is to warm up after the summer break and second and third one are to get familiar with coding for responsive layouts.
