Converting PSD to HTML

I'm planning to practice my web knowledge obtained here, by converting PSD into Html using html and css. So I started googling to find free psd blueprints. What I noticed that all those blueprints are desktop only. As I learned from treeHouse, the most officiant way is mobile approach first. You start from mobile as easy one and than going to larger resolutions rather then opposite. So is there should also be a mobile psd blueprint or what? I mean if I get a side job besides programming on iOS as a webDeveloper, what should I do if my employer doesn't give me the mobile psd blueprint but requires his site to be responsive. What should I do ? I do not wanna go from desktop to mobile, that is not what I have been tought here.

You should have or learn the front end skills to build a mobile responsive site. Mobile first approach really just means at the sites core it should be mobile friendly. And than as the screen resolution scales, you use media queries to introduce different layout configurations and/or elements.

It's very very rare these days that you will be able to be gainfully employed where all you do is turn someone's literal work into a website. Most employers will want, and your peers will be able to take rough concepts and ideas, and polish them into responsive and functional websites. So I would strongly encourage you to go that route. It seems like a big mountain to climb, and it is, but it will be most rewarding and you can do it.
