Beyond Media Queries: An Anatomy of an Adaptive Web Experience
Brad Frost takes us through the anatomy of responsive design and beyond the media query. He looks at what it really means to be responsive and how we best approach the process beginning with the design.
Media queries may be responsive design’s secret sauce, but we know there’s a whole lot more that goes into crafting amazing adaptive experiences. By dissecting an example of a mobile-first responsive design, we’ll uncover the principles of adaptive design and highlight some considerations for creating contextually-aware Web experiences. We’ll go over emerging mobile Web best practices and responsive patterns that can assist in our journey toward a future-friendly Web.
