March Meeting-Tuesday, March 26
It was not so long ago that web designer’s biggest challenge was whether our sites should span 800px or move up to 1024px wide. As monitors and screens continued to grow and increase in pixel resolution, decisions were necessary on how much of the full screen we should use.
However, the speed of technology continues to increase exponentially. The rise of mobile devices means that screens are also shrinking. Now we don’t only need to think “big”, we also need to think “small”.
Users now have a plethora of devices to use to access the web and theire only concern is if your applications works on their devise or if it takes a lot of energy to make it work. It is because of the multitude of devices connecting to the web causing our applications to evolve that resulted in the need for RWD, an approach to web design that places the user needs foremost.
RWD allows the user to the user to have the best possible experience when visiting your website despite the devise they use, be it a laptop, netbook, or a phone. By using RWD techniques you can save time by avoiding the hassle of creating of creating a unique user experience for each user and every device.
Join us Tuesday, March 26 when we discuss RWD and how you can use some of these techniques to make visiting your website a pleasurable experience no matter what devise your visitors use.
