Aug 29, Corey Capetillo rated it liked it. It’s awesome and might change web development for the better for the rest of humanity and you are just wasting time abooapart a review that has little to nothing to do with it. This is one of the best books to start learning about responsive web design. Is learning proprietary frontend “anything” worth it?

About — Responsive Web Design

Do you think it’s work learning proprietary frameworks like Bootstrap? Browsers iterate at a remarkable pace. Ethan Marcotte has a lively style, supporting his statements with vibrant anecdotes, analogies, jokes, and concrete examples.

It challenges you to think differently about your work and will change the way you design websites forever. Dec 26, James Cridland rated it it was amazing. That said, even if you’re more of an adaptive than a responsive person, this is still absolutely worth the read as it covers the nuts and bolts of what you’ll need to know. On the plus, each one of those points is heavily reinforced and plenty of examples are given for each.

I’ve just finished going through the book aobokapart it’s examples. And as a web designer it might seem intimidating.

Jan 15, Graham Herrli rated it really liked it Shelves: Because new standards are brought into play every 3 years, of even sooner. The practices applied within this book have been standards for so many years and we’ve been following them already.

If so, this book provides everything you need to take your web pages to the next level — before all your competitors do! Are you writing two websites — one for mobile and one for larger displays? This is indeed a must read for front-end developers and web designers as well.


Chapters I and V Highly recommend. Dec 27, Adam Wiggins rated it really liked it. This book will teach you how to create faster, lighter, better web applications by using the AJAX ingredients technologies to their full potential. The book is technical enough for dev people not to get bored when reading, but covers all the fundaments: If you’re already a front-end developer, well, prete Finally a book abiokapart by a designer who can actually write.

Jul desin, Steve rated it it was amazing Shelves: This ewb NOT a step-by-step guide in building a responsive site from scratch. The book is not technical responsie much for designers – going through ‘technical’ part of the book gives design-heads an idea of what dev I found the whole book particularly interesting and believe anyone web-business-related can benefit from reading it.

Finally a book written by a designer who can actually write. For sale on Amazon paperback. I ended the book fired up to do design this way from now on, and to go back and update sites I already have out there.

Sep 22, Jeb rated it it was ok. After all, the alternative – page elements lost in a sea of whitespace and line lengths too wide to be comfortably read, or content constricted into squashed-up columns, images cropped awkwardly or poking out where they shouldn’t – well let’s just say these have never been happy places for the designer pathological about presentation.

Fortunately such concerns need no longer hold us back, dsign to that devastatingly useful W3C construct, the CSS media query. If you are looking for either a deep dive into concepts, terms, and nuances or a how-to guide for various situations, then this is not the book.

The awards of design, creativity and innovation on the internet

This book will lead you, step by step and with illustrative screenshots, through a real example. The Smashing Book 3 contains 11 chapters. It’s quite handy in that it’s collected several techniques for building a ‘responsive’ layout design. A decade ago, Jeffrey Zeldman’s Designing WIth Web Standards certainly fit that description, convincing many of us to drop our table-based layouts in favour of accessible, standards-compliant CSS layouts.


No trivia or quizzes yet. For beginners in web design. After finishing this book I feel much more motivated to dig deeper and research about this topic.

The book is not technical to much for designers – going through ‘technical’ part of the book gives design-heads an idea of what dev is going through when implementing “oh, so creative designs”, which in turn may and I am sure will change the way all further projects are approached.

Silly comment reader, don’t read this comment when you could be reading the book this comment is about.

Good, my developer just changed some from book at https: Jun 12, Courtney Jordan rated it it was amazing. It’s like you are reading a poem or an artistic piece. I found the whole book particularly interesting and believe anyone web-business-related can benefit from reading it. Dec 02, Kevin rated it really liked it Shelves: What makes it great is that it’s not just a technical book on how to apply HTML and CSS to create responsive websites, it discuss the history, the principles and motivation behind the RWD movement, as well as providing numerous links to other excellent articles about this topic.

My favorite quotation from the book is: Thankfully we now speak the same language. The book helped me explain to my fellow designers about the philosophy behind RWD and how can we effectively produce a responsive design with less iterations and frustration.
