Figuring Out How To Make Your Website Into A Responsive Web Design Can Be A Challenge

Should you create a new website? Should you try to retro-fit your existing website?

Turning over rocks in far flung corners of the Internet yields very little.

Sure, you can try a plugin…but then one day while browsing your website from your mobile device, you find a page that is completely mangled. You dig a little more and discover a number of your pages aren’t displaying well on mobile devices.

There’s only so much a plugin or theme can do.

If you want full control with predictable results over your responsive web design, Practical Responsive Web Design is for you.

Instructor Biography

I'm a software engineer and entrepreneur. I've also started several businesses. Bitesize Business School is the latest, where I write about applying business principles to the real world and solving technology issues that every online business faces.

The first business I created, Cygen, was a web design consulting business. From this business, I also created my first product - A chatroom web application that was javascript based.

I've written desktop applications in languages running from Delphi to C# winforms/WPF. I've also built ASP.NET webforms and MVC based applications. When the iOS SDK was first introduced, I bought a Macbook and began building apps for the iPhone. I currently have seven apps in the iTunes App Store.

I have an MBA from ASU ('14). My undergraduate major was in mathematics. Before graduating, I decided to get a business degree. I continued taking mathematics courses at the University of Washington after completing my undergraduate degree.
