The New Toronto Group Seminar on “Responsive Design for Developers” focused on how to approach new projects that need to be designed and developed in a responsive manner. We guided attendees through some best practices in responsive based HTML5 development and showcased the special tools that can help in designing and coding.
“Day by day, the number of devices, platforms,
and browsers that need to work with your site grows.
Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift
in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come.”

As of December 31, 2013 world wide there were 1.2 Billion mobile internet users in the world. If you counted one mobile user ever second it would take you well over 30 years to count every single one. These 1.2 Billion people are using a wide variety of devices of all shapes and sizes. Even just looking at a segment of the world’s population in North America we see a huge amount of mobile usage and demand for sites and applications optimized for small screen use.
Responsive design allows us to create mobile web sites and mobile applications that are optimized for a multitude of device widths. Instead of having a focus on specific devices, responsive design takes an agnostic approach to mobile web development. Through the responsive design process we can ensure that, as these new screen sizes come into play, our users will get an optimized experience every time.
New Toronto Group’s seminar on responsive design took attendees through this design approach and how to work it into a mobile strategy. Download the slides here from the seminar.
