March PADNUG - Mobile First Responsive Design by Jason Grigsby

Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus
5200 NE Elam Young Pkwy
Hillsboro, OR 97124, US (map)



Mobile first and responsive web design aren’t simply two great tastes that go great together. No they represent much more than that. Mobile first responsive web design is the responsible way to build responsive designs.

Mobile first responsive web design is the best way to build something that is both responsive from a layout AND a performance perspective.

But if mobile first is the right way to do responsive design, then why are so few people doing it? In this presentation, we’ll dig into why mobile first responsive design matters and the five techniques necessary to make it work.

Jason Grigsby was one of the project leads on the Obama iPhone Application and helped design the user interface for the Wall Street Journal’s Blackberry application. He founded and organizes Mobile Portland, a local mobile development user group. Jason built his first web page in 1995. He has spent the last 11 years building web sites professionally before being bitten by the mobile bug prompting him to throw caution to the wind and start a new company focused on mobile and web development. He blogs at CloudFour.com (http://cloudfour.com/) and can be found on Twitter as @grigs (http://twitter.com/grigs).
