Very Good Intro on Responsive Web Design

Responsive Web Design Overview for Beginners does exactly what it says it is going to do so it gets five starts from me. It provided an overview and lay out the concepts in layman’s term for the average Joe who knows little to nothing about Responsive Web Design. I would go further to say it might have something even for those in IT who like me work on legacy console type applications. I have been slowly getting into Web Application Testing but I have not done a lot in this arena. I was vaguely familiar with the term Responsive Web Design and knew it had something to do with making websites functional on smaller screens.

Most of my interest in this area stems from my personal experience as a power user on my mobile devices. I notice a significant difference in usability and readability on some websites between my desktop computer, tablets and phone. I can tell what sites are optimized for mobile experience and which ones are not. I often wondered what it took to create that consistent user experience and why some companies get it wrong.

This book taught me all I need to know about the subject for now. It gave me a good understanding some of the transformations that should occur when moving down to a smaller screen in jargon that I could understand. I also got some insight into why elements are re-arrange on websites when I look at it on my tablet versus my phone. I got a lot more out if it than I thought I would. It really tied together a lot of what I knew.

I loved how the narrator read CSS code. The narration was perfection itself. I don’t know if I would recommend this book for anyone with web development training or expertise as you might already know enough of the material but it is certainly a helpful starting point for the person that is looking to learn about websites in the mobile arena.
