Course Overview1:29 with Nick Pettit
In this course overview, you'll learn more about what this course covers.
[MUSIC] 0:00 In general, responsive design consists of fluid grids, fluid images, and 0:04 media queries. 0:09 By this point, you should have already done some responsive design. 0:11 But understanding the origins and 0:15 foundational principles will help you step into more advanced concepts. 0:17 That's a lot to think about, so 0:23 these lessons will focus on layouts in responsive design. 0:24 In other words, we'll learn about some of the basic theory behind responsive design. 0:29 And then we'll step into more specific concepts like breakpoints and 0:35 design patterns. 0:40 If that doesn't make any sense now, don't worry. 0:42 We're going to cover everything in more detail soon. 0:46 Whether you're a designer or a developer, and whether you're working on 0:49 some views in a Rails app, a PHP site, a WordPress theme, a static website, 0:54 or really any other type of webpage, the principles will remain the same. 0:59 I should also point out that we're going to be using plain CSS 1:04 throughout this course for the benefit of everyone's understanding. 1:08 But if you're more comfortable using something like Sass, Less, or 1:13 any other CSS extensions or compilers, the ideas presented here will still apply. 1:17 With that out of the way, 1:23 let's learn about the origins of responsive web design. 1:25
