On April 17 I had the pleasure to present about Responsive Design in front of a fantastic audience at the New York WordPress Meetup. We explored the techniques and principles of Responsive Design together, including the Flexible Grid, Fluid Images and Media Queries showing examples of how these principles can be used to create a user-friendly experience across all devices and screen-sizes.
I shared this presentation with Jack Reichert who spoke about the pros and cons of Responsive Design and Progressive Enhancement vs. Graceful Degradation.
