The Digital Pond: Responding to the responsive web

Date: 7 Aug 2014, Time 18:00

After our rest-filled spring break, the Digital Pond is back in action and we are hitting the ground running with our next event. After feedback from many Ponderers we have decided to revisit the theme of responsive web design.

Free Networking & Keynote Speech Event

2013 was the Year of Responsive Web Design, according to Mashable. More people than ever are visiting websites from mobile devices—recent estimates say as many as 40%. It’s also easier than ever to accommodate mobile visitors, but how can we go even further and make sure they’re getting the best possible user experience?

At this summer’s edition of the Digital Pond, we’ll hear professionals share their experiences with responsive web design, their knowledge of current best practices, and their predictions for the future. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the experts and network with lots of likeminded people.

He’s the curator of the dConstruct conference as well as Responsive Day Out, and he organised the world’s first Science Hack Day. Jeremy has written three books about JavaScript and HTML5.
