Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Additional resources, part of Learning Responsive Design.
I want to thank you for watching Responsive Design Fundamentals. I hope that you have a clearer overall picture of what responsive design is and how adopting responsive design will affect your overall workflow. Before I finish, I want to leave you with a few of the responsive-design-focused blogs and sites that I read on a regular basis. Reading these can help you dive deeper into responsive design and perhaps more importantly, keep an eye on how it evolves. First, I recommend bookmarking the Filament Group's lab page.
You've probably heard me mention the Filament Group a couple of times during this title. They are a web development agency that specializes in building experiences across devices and platforms. Their lab page is a fantastic collection of articles that document their processes and observations resulting from their work. Since they are at the forefront of responsive design, it's well worth your time to keep an eye on their site. I also recommend Luke Wroblewski's lukew.com site. Luke is the author of Mobile First and one of the leading proponents of mobile-friendly design.
This is perhaps the best resource online to learn about designing for the mobile context. It's also a good idea to keep your eye on unstoppablerobotninja.com, if you don't already. This is the online blog of Ethan Marcotte, author of responsive design and in many ways the first designer to articulate the concepts behind it. I'm also a big fan of Brad Frost and his blog, BradFrostweb.com. Brad writes articles and tutorials that focus on responsive design, and is one of the leading voices on designing across multiple contexts.
Of course, I also recommend checking out all of the web and mobile design and development courses in the lynda.com online training library. We're adding new responsive design titles to the library all the time, so be sure to check back frequently. Well, that's all for now. Feel free to drop me a line on my blog, www.simpleprimate.com, or join the conversation on Twitter, where you can reach me by tweeting or following @jameswillweb. Thanks again for watching everyone, and I'll see you in my next lynda.com title.
