Responsive Web Design

May 3, 2014 · Raleigh, United States of America

The Responsive Web Design class runs on Saturday, May 3rd from 9am-5pm. 
The most popular computers today have a variety of screen resolutions, from tiny BlackBerry to Android phones to iPad minis to larger tablets that approach desktop sizes. In two years more people will access the web via these mobile devices than with desktop PCs. Responsive design allows us web developers to target all of these devices and build future-friendly websites that work for all users.
With this class, you’ll build a mobile-first, HTML5 website from scratch with a flexible layout and touch-friendly navigation. Using CSS3 media queries and a little Javascript, we’ll create fluid designs that work across all devices while learning useful design patterns that solve common responsive design problems. You'll also learn techniques for responsive images and videos, feature detection to add progressive enhancement to your pages, and methods for testing your designs. By the end of the class you’ll be ready to make any website mobile-friendly, responsive and accessible to all users.
NOTE: This class requires intermediate HTML and CSS knowledge. If you're not sure what intermediate knowledge means, please email us at [masked].

Your Teacher: Autumn Welles, Front End Developer at Coalmarch Productions

Autumn is a self-taught front-end developer. She takes designs and turns them into reality using HTML, CSS, Javascript, and whatever templating languages are handy. She began coding at the ripe age of thirteen and simply couldn't help but be awed by the process of creating something from nothing.
When not in front of a computer, Autumn can be found teaching her dog new tricks, drinking local beer, or enjoying the outdoors. She also enjoys watching 90's TV shows while crocheting when the weather is chilly. In the past, she has volunteered on farms from Washington state to Arizona and driven all across the United States (a few times over).
Tech Requirements:
Your laptop. Note: A netbook or tablet is NOT a substitute.
A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 3 (It's free and available for both Mac, PC or Linux).
Refund policy: Your payment of $80 guarantees your seat in the entire course. Please note that we cannot issue refunds, since there's an overhead to issuing refunds via Meetup.com and we already offer the workshops at such a low cost. We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund.
Other Disclaimers: Our program and curriculum are geared toward adults over the age of 18; at this time we do not accept minors as students in our courses and workshops.

  • Girl Develop It RDU

    It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today's budding developer community is up to 91% male. There isn't a comfortable place where women can learn at their own pace and not be afraid to ask "stupid questions." We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a sup...
