Responsive design: An undead introduction

The apocalypse has happened, but don’t despair. There’s still one way to fight the zombies and it’s not with a shotgun. It’s by building websites. Crazy? Unbelievable? Fantastic? True.

Bring along some basic programming skills, because in this course, we’ll discuss responsive design: building a website that works across a wide array of devices. We’ll arm you with zombie-killing weapons like media queries, flexible layouts, and the picture element.

Humanity needs you. Join the resistance.

“Thank you for your sense of humor throughout the course. It helped make a somewhat dry topic more exciting!”

“The base content was excellent but as someone who is not technical I found it harder to understand & follow with all of the zombie references.”

“It was a nice course as I learnt a few things to add to my Responsive Web Design toolbelt. Thanks for the course.”
