What is
RWD?
Responsive Web
Design
RWD is the concept of
developing a website in a
way that allows the
layout to adjust
according to the
user’s screen resolution
(view port) using media
queries

Who needs RWD?
You need RWD if:
•You’re starting from scratch.
•You want to keep costs low
•You want it to work even when new devices
are released
Why is it relevant?
•1.8 billion
•6.8 billion
•3.4 billion
internet connections in the world today.
people in the world today.
people with mobile devices today.
( roughly ½ the population of the planet)
Why is it relevant?
It’s about people, not devices
•Yes your iPhone goes to great lengths to
facilitate browsing full sites, but technology
should be available to everyone, even those
without smart phones.
•The most popular devices aren’t necessarily
the most used devices.
Why is it relevant?
•1.3 billion
mobile internet users in the world today.
( Includes WAP and “real web” )
•1/3
of the
global internet users
access the internet only via mobile
Why is it relevant?
The future is now:
•Babies have an easier time interacting with an
iPad than with a magazine. To them a print
magazine is just like a broken iPad.
•Websites are not limited to laptops only.
Why is it relevant?
It’s convenient:
•You’re not at your desk, you are hungry. In
your email you have a coupon to this cool new
restaurant. You pull up your phone, click on the
link and…
•What would you expect to see?
Why is it relevant?
RWD allows us to tweak the layout and present
the relevant information first: hours, phone
number, directions and perhaps a link to the
menu.
Meanwhile back at your desk, the restaurant’s
page has all the bells and whistles you didn’t
care for while browsing on your phone.
Why is it relevant?
• Avoids keyhole browsing.
• You shouldn’t need a
magnifying glass to access web
content on your phone.
Hello Media
Queries and
CSS3
In its essence a media
query consists of a media
type and an expression to
check for certain
conditions of a particular
media feature. The most
commonly used media
feature is width.
CSS3 & Media
Queries
The absence of support for
@media queries is in fact
the first @media query.
CSS3 & Media
Queries
In your CSS:
@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {
.content { float: left; }
.social_icons { display: none }
// and so on...
}
CSS3 & Media
Queries
On the header of your website:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="this.css"
media="(min-width: 960px)">
CSS3 & Media
Queries
By restricting CSS rules to a certain
width of the device displaying a web
page, one can tailor the page's
representation to devices with varying
screen resolution (view port).

How do we design
for RWD
Simple:
Use the Mobile First Approach
and favor Progressive
Enhancement instead of the
traditional Graceful Degradation
Mobile First
Approach
Mobile First
Approach
Graceful
Degradation
• Focuses on building the website for the most
advanced/capable browsers.
• Older browsers are expected to have a poor,
but passable experience.
• Small fixes may be made to accommodate a
particular browser ( they are not the focus )
Progressive
Enhancement
• Focuses on the content. ( not browsers )
• Think from the content out. ( Peanut M&M )
– Peanut: Content marked up in rich semantic (x)html
– Coated with rich creamy CSS
– Added JS as the hard candy shell
Progressive
Enhancement
Progressive Enhancement consists of the
following core principles:
•basic content and functionality should be accessible to all
web browsers
•sparse, semantic markup contains all content
•enhanced layout  external CSS
•enhanced behavior  external JavaScript
•end-user web browser preferences are respected
Progressive
Enhancement
Benefits:
•Accessibility: PE pages are by
nature more accessible.
•SEO: Since basic content is always
accessible

Hands on
Demo time:
We will be demoing a couple of examples, one
will be plain HTML5 + CSS using h5bp and the
other will be similar but using Drupal.
