Back to basics

Posted by admin on October 1st, 2011 at 11:03 am

I have been working with mobile a lot recently and it really brings me back to the good ole days of web design, sure the browsers are a little more predictable now, although that must comes with practice I guess. But the process of testing is exactly like in 1998 when you would make your change then quickly check the browser/browsers, never trusting any form of the dreaded design view of any editor. I would go so far to say as that it’s a much more engaging experience… Although not to healthy on your work flow!

Now much more of the design to markup process is directly taken place in the browsers with their advance and extremely useful debugging and fiddling features. It simply makes our job a tonne easier.

Anyway mobile is fun and if your not already taking care of mobile it really is time to engage. Thus is an easy process with many routes you can take to suit your own experience, from simply writing a more responsive style sheet to delivering new layouts and includes that are device specific you can find a method that suits your style and skill set.

I think I’ll go into more detail in my next post and deliver some live examples put to practice on this site itself.
