Reponsive design is hot. JavaScript is cool. But mix them together in the wrong quantities and you can end up with a bit of a tepid mess. Don't settle for luke-warm! Instead come along and find out how a spot of carefully considered JavaScript can help rather than hinder the users of your beautiful device-independent website.

We'll be covering:

  • What JavaScript can bring to the responsive web design table.
  • Potential pitfalls, considerations and suggested best practices
  • Useful tools and libraries.
  • Real-world examples of sites doing it right (and maybe a few that are doing it wrong!).

Mark is a frontend developer (and general web tinkerer) currently working at Clearleft, where he builds websites with some of the smartest people in the industry. He also helps develop a browser plugin for Gmail called ActiveInbox that has a passionate community of users across the world.
