Responsive Web Design is a method for designing & developing websites that provide optimal viewing experiences (in terms of reading, navigation, & layout) across a wide range of traditional & mobile devices. In order to fully understand the concepts & code, however, you first need a good grounding in HTML & CSS. This intensive 5-day course provides everything you need: we start with a broad overview of HTML, then continue into a deep dive into CSS, & finish with how to use Bootstrap, the most widely-used responsive framework. Taught by two experienced instructors who have over three decades of web development experience between them, you will learn both principles and real world solutions.
