Responsive layout is becoming a hottest trend in web design recently. As you saw my first premium wordpress theme, the theme adapts to the screen resolution of the viewing device: large monitors, laptops, tablet devices, and smartphones. It’s very cool, right? Would you like to turn your websites to be a responsive layout? Lol, this is really a big problem.
In his Rolling Up Our Responsive Sleeves talk at An Event Apart in Atlanta, GA 2012 Ethan Marcotte walked through ways to tackle thorny issues in responsive design layouts, media, advertising, and more. Here are my notes from his talk:
Besides mobile phones and computers, these days internet can also be accessed via e-readers, netbooks, tablets, televisions and gaming consoles. It is just not feasible to make websites for each and every one of them.
Lo que sigue es una modesta traducción del artículo de John Albin Wilkins publicado el 16 de Julio de 2012 en palantir.net: "Responsive Design’s Dirty Little Secret" sobre el problema del redondeo del px en los diseños basados en porcentajes. Además de la parte expositiva y explicativa inicial, el autor incluye alguna solucción. De entrada mis disculpas por los fallos o errores tanto en la traducción como interpretación de los conceptos expuestos. Si encuentras alguno déjame tu propuesta en los comentarios. Gracias.

In his presentation at An Event Apart in Washington DC 2012 Brad Frost talked about the principles behind adaptive Web design and shared a number of techniques for creating responsive pages. Here's my notes from his talk on Beyond Media Queries: An Anatomy of an Adaptive Web Experience.
Through fluid grids and media query adjustments, responsive design enables Web page layouts to adapt to a variety of screen sizes. As more designers embrace this technique, we're not only seeing a lot of innovation but the emergence of clear patterns as well. I cataloged what seem to be the most popular of these patterns for adaptable multi-device layouts.
Determining a unit of measurement to size our text can be a topic of heated debate, even in this day and age. Unfortunately, there are still various pros and cons that make the various techniques less desirable. It's just a matter of which less-desirable is most desirable.
The truth is that fluid grids are broken. Well… perhaps just cracked a bit. Responsive Web design, as Ethan Marcotte defines it, is simply a fluid grid, fluid images and media queries. But fluid grids have a dirty little secret: rounding errors. As we lay out our columns in percentages, browsers have to translate that into actual device pixels to fit in the viewport. And Chrome, Safari, other WebKit browsers, Opera, and the usual suspects (IE 6 and 7) all produce “errors”.
