In this workshop, Vitaly Friedman (editor-in-chief of Smashing Magazine), will cover practical techniques, clever tricks and useful strategies you need to be aware of when working on responsive websites. From responsive modules to clever navigation patterns and web form design techniques; the workshop will provide you with everything you need to know today to start designing better responsive experiences tomorrow.

Most techniques are borrowed from mid-size and large-scale real-life projects, such as large eCommerce projects, online magazines and web applications. We won’t cover the basics, instead, the workshops covers more advanced techniques used in responsive design.


To learn innovative design patterns that can be applied to any responsive project: e.g. how to deal with navigation, maps, data visualization, tables, carousels, forms and more advanced interface components.
