(music playing) Hi! I am James Williamson, senior author here at, and I want to welcome you to Applied Responsive Design. In this course, we're going to explore many of the strategies and techniques that are being employed to control the appearance and behavior of sites across multiple screen sizes and devices. As we explore responsive design, we'll see how it affects the entire process of building sites, from the early planning stages to site development, and even in terms of how we test and deploy our sites.

We'll cover the planning aspects of responsive sites, how to craft responsible layouts and media, how to handle site navigation across devices and screen sizes, and how you can use mobile capabilities to enhance your site's overall experience. We will also talk about properly managing resources for responsive sites and what you can do to help improve performance. Responsive design is not just another fad; it's a reaction to the reality of designing for users who expect to experience your site across multiple devices and screen sizes. So, open up your favorite code editor and let's get started crafting responsive designs.
