Responsive Design

  • Responsive Web Design at Microsoft Developers Network (MSDN). This article describes responsive design as “addressing the ever-changing landscape of devices, browsers, screen sizes and orientations by creating flexible, fluid and adaptive Web sites. Instead of responding to today’s needs for a desktop Web version adapted to the most common screen resolution, along with a particular mobile version (often specific to a single mobile device), the idea is to approach the issue the other way around: use flexible and fluid layouts that adapt to almost any screen.”
  • Responsive Web Design, the original 2010 article by Ethan Marcotte at A List Apart. Perhaps a little too technical for beginners, but it’s worth recording the origins of the concept.
