20+ Responsive Web Design Tutorials To Get You Started
In a time where more and more people access the Internet using mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads, it is important for everyone working with web design to master the principles and techniques used to create responsive layouts. Responsive websites adapt to the screen dimensions of the device used to render a web page. This means desktop users and mobile phone users typically will receive the same content, but with a different layout. Responsive web design is by far the most effective, and cost optimized way to offer a good user experience across the many different devices people use. It is possible to create website dedicated to mobile devices, apps and hybrids, however, from a development and maintenance perspective it is more complex and costly.
Leaning the basics of responsive web designs require some experience with CSS3, as CSS media queries is one of the core element of making web pages adapt to specific screen sizes and view ports. However, it is also about accepting that there is a lot more work to do if you want to get it right. A responsive website may have 2 to 5 almost unique layouts, menu designs and more. I have collected a set of useful tutorials to get you started. Most of the tutorials included focus on the basics and I hope they will give you a good introduction of the techniques.
