Webinar: Responsive Web Design for Libraries

Speaker Matthew Reidsma

Matthew Reidsma is the Web Services Librarian at Grand Valley State University.  He believes in clean code, progressive enhancement, ginger ale, and that this is the year the Cubs will go all the way.  He writes about design, the Web, and libraries at http://matthewreidsma.com.


A responsive website adapts to each user's device, changing its presentation through fluid grids, scalable images, and CSS3 media queries.  Instructor Matthew Reidsma will give an introduction to responsive design and walk through the creation of a simple responsive library webpage that looks great on every device and eliminates the need to maintain separate websites for "desktop" and "mobile" devices, while offering equal access to all.

Who should attend:
Anyone who designs, develops, writes content for, or uses the web.  Some HTML and CSS code will be demonstrated, but you won't need to understand code in order to see how Responsive Design principles work.

By the end of this program, participants will:
- Understand the basic principles of Responsive Design and how to build websites that adapt to any device our users throw at them.
