Creating a Responsive Web Experience
1h 23m Intermediate Nov 18, 2013

Viewers: in countries Watching now:

Many times, simply resizing your web design is not enough to create a satisfying user experience. This course helps you make your webpages more responsive to different screen sizes with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Picking up where he left off in Creating a Responsive Web Design, Chris Converse shows how to modify your existing HTML, dynamically load content, animate elements on the page, and collapse the navigation on smaller screens—while allowing users to expand menus with a tap of their finger.

Note: This course uses the jQuery JavaScript library to add interactivity and other features to the example site. But if you've never written JavaScript before, don't worry. This course provides a step-by-step approach to writing just the code you need to replicate the experience Chris shows on screen.

Topics include:
  • Modifying the graphics
  • Adjusting the CSS for the navigation
  • Adding JavaScript and jQuery to your project
  • Loading content with jQuery
  • Determining screen size with JavaScript
  • Loading alternate content based on screen size
  • Animating the hero panel
  • Maintaining support for Internet Explorer 7 and 8

(Music playing) Hi, this is Chris Converse. And in this course I'm going to show you how to alter the user experience of a web page based on screen size. While HTML and CSS can be very powerful for making a design responsive, adding in JavaScript gives you the opportunity to adjust the user experience as well. In this course, we'll pick up from my responsive of design course and we'll change the HTML based on screen size. We'll animate elements on the page and we'll even change the way the navigation works. Instead of moving the navigation down to be below the content using just HTML and CSS.

We'll use JavaScript to collapse the navigation and will let users open the navigation with a single click or tap of their finger. Now if you've never tried JavaScript or jQuery before, fear not. I'll show you how to do all of these things step by step. So I hope this course sounds interesting to you. And if so, let's get started.
