2013 is the year of responsive web design according to Mashable and, at Knowledge7, we believe they are spot on.
Wikipedia defines responsive web design as “a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience – easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling – across a wide range of devices from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones.”
Important aspects of responsive web design include the optimal use of CSS3, fluid grids and images sized in such a way to prevent them from being shown outside the screen. This new way of building websites is a direct consequence of people browsing more and more using mobile devices likes smartphones and tablets with smaller screens than traditional desktops. It would be stupid to show them only part of the content and therefore web designers need to adapt.
Adapt or perish
At Knowledge7, we have been providing web design courses for the past three years. And, like everyone else, we also need to adapt. This is why, for our coming Web Design with HTML and CSS training starting on 18 April 2013, we are currently updating the content to better reflect this new design philosophy.
As a reminder, here are the topics we are going to cover: markup and styling, changing text, tables and links, color and images, multimedia, the CSS box model, enhanced navigation, flexible layouts and printing, scripting and forms.
