Responsive web design

WRK9 Workshops Track

Galleria South

WEDNESDAY, 1:00 - 4:30 PM

Responsive web design (RWD) is the biggest paradigm shift in web design in the last decade. The best practices we’ve relied on for years are becoming obsolete. Today’s modern web developer needs to have a firm grasp on responsive techniques. In this workshop, we’ll cover a wide range of responsive design topics including: media queries, CSS grids/frameworks, responsive design workflow, responsive email and more. We’ll look at code samples and evaluate your own sites and projects. A survey will be provided to registrants in advance of the workshop to ensure the topics most pertinent to you are addressed. RWD is best learned with a hands-on approach, so bring your laptop and get ready to code. An intermediate-to-expert understanding of HTML/CSS is preferable, but don’t worry, we’ll make sure no one gets left behind.

Presenters

Peter Anglea
Web Developer, Bob Jones University

Peter Anglea is not your ordinary developer. He hates using technical jargon and prides himself in being able to explain complex ideas to just about anyone using everyday language. He has an eye for front-end design and a knack for back-end coding. Peter is the lead developer for Bob Jones University's marketing division where his responsibilities range from programming to social media. As a self-taught web developer with over a decade of experience, he is keenly aware of the pressures facing "armies of one" and the issues of working in a larger team environment. At HighEdWeb 2013 in Buffalo, Peter's track session presentation on responsive web design workflow won Best of Conference. In addition, two websites designed and developed by BJU's marketing team won a combined haul of seven eduStyle awards in 2013. When Peter is not busy cranking out code, you might find him putting his master's degree in music composition to good use or acting in various dramatic productions.
