This workshop on 6 December 2021 focused on creating a web page that looks good on desktop and mobile devices. Now that 70% of web browsing is mobile, it's critical that websites work on phone-sized screens as well as 4K monitors.
This hands-on webinar walks participants through applying a powerful open standard called CSS grid that makes it easy to build responsive web pages. The beauty of CSS grid is that it allows designers to code visually, arranging descriptive words to build complex layouts that scale gracefully between large and small screens.
Conducting the workshop is New Media professor Jon Ippolito, whose courses include how to design and build web and mobile apps.
This is part of a series of free webinars on cutting-edge technologies offered by the University of Maine's New Media program, which teaches skills like animation, digital storytelling, gaming, music, physical computing, video, and web and app development. These are not Powerpoint lectures but guided demonstrations that students can follow at school or at home on their laptops. More about these webinars.
