The future is here, and the future is responsive. With the explosion of devices that can access the Web, we have to adjust how we design our websites and our digital products. In this talk, we delve into the evolution of responsive design - where we've been and how we got here. 

 
We examine the progress we've made so far in creating the tools and methods that allow us to design responsively. We also take a peek into where responsive design is going in the coming months and years. 
 
The best way to meet this bold future and create better online products is to prototype and build faster. We'll talk about how you can do just that and the tools within your reach.
 
Directions:
  • Use the 1501 Page Mill entrance, at Page Mill and Peter Coutts Rd.
  • Drive straight.
  • Find parking after the second stop sign.
  • The entrance is at the left corner of building 5.
