Event Details

Join DCWW for another Code(Her) workshop where Web Manager Clarissa Peterson will spend 2 hours introducing you to the hot topic of responsive web design (RWD)! During this session, Clarissa will:

  • Define responsive web design (RWD) and explain how it differs from other approaches to web design/layout
  • Show examples of how various websites are successfully using RWD to provide users with a quality experience across screen sizes and devices
  • Lead you in a hands-on exercise to convert a fixed-width layout to a responsive layout using techniques such as fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries
  • Discuss "responsive workflow" and how to adapt your design and development process to accommodate RWD
  • Provide a list of resources where you can learn more about RWD

No experience is necessary; however, attendees should have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS. We recommend you bring your laptop and charging accessories as Clarissa will demonstrate techniques you can put to use immediately. Both women and men are encouraged and welcome to attend!

Network and enjoy a light dinner (pizza and soda) at 6:00. Instruction will begin promptly at 6:30. Advance registration/purchase is required. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
