Responsive design is more than a popular facet of web development. We believe in the next few years it will be web design. In years past, people asked "why bother designing for mobile?" Soon they'll pull out their phones and wonder "is your site broken?" We adopted a mobile-first stance not only to build the best websites possible, but also to understand best practices, design patterns and the nuts-n-bolts of crafting sites in an increasingly mobile web. Now it's time to pass that experience to you.
You'll learn how to optimize sites for mobile devices and widescreen computers alike from the designers and developers behind Foundation, our mobile-oriented CSS framework. No previous experience with responsive techniques is needed, but you'll want to have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS. Each lesson is 45 minutes long with 15 minutes at the end for any questions you might have.
