Mobile Meetup: Responsive Web Design – A Technical Deep Dive


In April of 2013, NUIT A&RT AMPS and Science in Society gave a collaborative presentation demoing the responsive components of the new Science in Society website. Following up on April’s Mobile Meetup: Responsive Design Showcase, NUIT A&RT AMPS developers Alex Miner and Rodolfo Vieira will be presenting a technical deep dive on responsive design topics and techniques today at 2pm in Norris. This deep dive is targeted at web communications and IT professionals that had expressed further interest on the technical aspects of implementing RWD (Responsive Web Design) after attending the previous Mobile Meetup on RWD. The presentation will cover a variety of RWD topics, and lead into a discussion on implementation and usage of various RWD technologies.

Topics covered will include:

  • Fluid Design, Breakpoints & Media Queries
  • Responsive Navigation
  • HTML5 Input Types
  • SASS
  • Retina and Fluid Images with SASS and RetinaJS
  • Debugging in a Mobile Environment
