Responsive Web Design for the Mobile Web

Course summary

Responsive Web Design for the Mobile Web


Today the majority of Internet users are on mobile devices.

Web designs must respond to a vast range of screen sizes and platforms.

This hands-on practical course teaches skills and provides experience in designs that fluidly adapt to their environment.

Comments from past participants:

"I travelled 400 miles...for this course, was well worth it! Glenn's lectures were very informative, he was great at explaining everything. He uses his own words to describe or explain something, which is very helpful and makes it much easier to understand, he's made up his own book with exercises that are very easy to follow. It's all very personal and relevant."

"Excellent teachers. Great content."

"I found the course very beneficial, with some of the best-prepared exercises I have ever come across in many years of attending similar courses. Each exercise moved you on, while forcing you to remember and build on earlier work. I found the course leaders very knowledgeable and helpful."
