Beyond Responsive [Workshop]

A presentation at Future of Web Design in in New York, NY, USA by Aaron Gustafson

Responsive web design has taken our industry by storm and with good reason; it helps us improve our reach with less effort. However, incorporating responsive design is not the goal, meeting our user’s needs is! Responsive design is not an end in itself… it’s just the beginning. We need to embrace the heterogenous nature of the web - myriad web-enabled devices with vastly different dimensions, screen sizes, networks, and capabilities used by countless individuals, each with their own special needs - and craft experiences that will work anywhere at any time. We need to build robust systems that adapt in ways far beyond aesthetics. If you or your team are responsible for creating interfaces on the web then this workshop is for you. All you’ll need is an open mind and rudimentary drawing skills but if you think better in code whether it's HTML, CSS, and/or Javascript, feel free to bring your laptop (but it’s not essential).
