September Homegrown

Save the Date

Homegrown will be back from summer hiatus with a talk about Responsive Design on September 11, 2012.
We will cover the fundamental ingredients of the approach—combining flexible layouts and media queries. Review advanced layout techniques, so you can get comfortable working with a fluid grid as opposed to a pixel-heavy one. We will discuss strategies for managing different kinds of media, from images to third-party video and advertising. And finally review why progressive enhancement is critical to designing for today’s Web, whether you’re working responsively or not.

Topics to be covered:

  • Responsive design strategies
  • Flexible grid fundamentals
  • Advanced layout
  • Managing media and media queries
  • Progressive enhancement
  • Feature detection
  • Establishing an accessible baseline
  • Responsive content

Registration opens on August 8, 2012. Look for the registration link on our Eventbrite page.
