CS 347: Lecture 10 – Responsive Web Design

September 24, 2020 by . Filed under fall-2020, lectures, webdev.

Dear students:

The technologist’s temptation is to ignore the differences in people and machines. We developers lump people together in a big homogeneous bucket, assuming everyone thinks like us, functions like us, and has a machine like ours. Supporting diversity is hard work; ignoring it is easier. If you have a soul, you will accept this hard work as the only way to keep bias out of your computational creations.

In this lecture, we explore some ways to make our web sites navigable on a broader spectrum of devices, from desktops to mobiles to everything in between.

Here’s your TODO list:

See you next time.
