Mobile-First Responsive Web Design
What Is Mobile-First Responsive Web Design? Mobile-First Responsive Web Design is a combination of philosophies/strategies, and ultimately boils down to a broader application of good ol’ web best practices. As the digital landscape gets increasingly complex, we need to design experiences that work across the entire spectrum of digital devices. Mobile First Mobile First Mobile First is a philosophy created by Luke Wroblewski that highlights the need to prioritize the mobile context when creating user experiences. Responsive Web Design Responsive Web Design is a term coined by Ethan Marcotte that articulates how to adapt a website’s layout for multiple screen resolutions. Progressive Enhancement Ultimately, mobile-first responsive web design comes down to using Progressive Enhancement as a foundation for web strategy and design. Why Mobile-First RWD Works The interactive landscape is increasingly complex. That’s what makes mobile-first responsive web design a great approach. Content. Related:  MobileJob

Mobile Web Programming and Designing - iPhone, Android, Mobile Widgets, webapps. tablets and more Forget responsive web design… 31 January, 2011 …you need adaptive web design. I now completely disagree with nigh-on all of the below. I’ve decided to leave this post for posterity, but I no longer stand by it. The web has been abuzz recently over the advent of responsive web design. It is however, like most things, not without its downsides. My problem lies a little more closely to home, though. The name. I much prefer the name adaptive web design. This difference is pretty subtle but very important. The problem with calling it responsive web design is that by its very nature it implies that it offers feedback (or a response) to a user’s actions. Responsive web design tends to use fluid layouts to cater for any possible resolution. Desktop – 1024px and above (current industry standard)Legacy desktop – 800x600pxTablet – 768px on the iPadMobile – 480px on the iPhone Furthermore for me is the work involved in creating a layout that will accommodate someone who is browsing at a resolution of, say, 913px.

Nouveau thème graphique en HTML5 et responsive design Vous ne l’aviez sûrement pas remarqué, mais le thème de ce blog a été entièrement réécrit en HTML5. Le but de cette refonte n’était pas de revoir la charte graphique (qui me convient bien), mais de se livrer à un exercice de remise à niveau du code. J’ai donc demandé à mes anciens collègues de Mahi-Mahi (et notamment Alex) de se pencher sur la question et vous avez le résultat sous les yeux : un thème graphique identique au précédent, mais avec un temps de chargement divisé par deux (on passe d’une page d’accueil de 2 Mo à 880 Ko) et une mise en page en responsive design qui s’adapte automatiquement à l’écran du terminal que vous utilisez (cf. Le responsive design à l’assaut des terminaux mobiles). Donc concrètement ce blog est beaucoup plus rapide à charger (moins de 7 secondes au lieu de 14), et sa mise en page s’adapte à la largeur de la fenêtre ou du terminal utilisé. Pour rentrer dans les détails, voici les tâches réalisées sur la structure HTML :

Multi-Device Layouts — Web Fundamentals The use of mobile devices to surf the web is growing at an astronomical pace, but unfortunately much of the web isn't optimized for those mobile devices. Mobile devices are often constrained by display size and require a different approach to how content is laid out on the screen. A multitude of different screen sizes exist across phones, "phablets," tablets, desktops, game consoles, TVs, and even wearables. Screen sizes are always changing, so it's important that your site can adapt to any screen size, today or in the future. Responsive web design, originally defined by Ethan Marcotte in A List Apart, responds to the needs of the users and the devices they're using. The layout changes based on the size and capabilities of the device. Responsive Web Design In this course you'll learn the fundamentals of responsive web design with Google's Pete LePage! You’ll start by exploring what makes a site responsive and how some common responsive design patterns work across different devices. Try it

Design Your Own Android Apps Without Programming Skills » Web Design » SitePoint Blogs This article was written in 2010 and remains one of our most popular posts. If you’re keen to learn more about Android development, you may find this recent article on free web development apps of great interest. If you like the idea of creating your own App but don’t have any coding skills, you may be very interested to hear about Google’s new offering. The App Inventor (with the obligatory BETA in the title) is a new tool which allows non-programmers to build fully working applications for Android. To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a developer. Google has been working on the tool for over a year and it has been tested in schools and colleges. Here’s a 60-second video (with jazzy, xylophone background music) showing how a simple app can be created using the App Inventor. You can learn more about the App Inventor and see tutorials and sample apps here. So designers, do you think this is a good thing and something you might use?

ergognome L’ergonomie a longtemps été destinée à des experts du poste de travail exerçant principalement dans l’industrie, sur les chaînes de production, dans les processus de design, dans la conception d’interfaces logicielles. L’arrivée du web au début des années 1990 a cependant fondamentalement changé la donne. L’ergonomie ne se développa véritablement qu’à partir de la Seconde Guerre mondiale mais le mot en lui même a été employé pour la première fois par le biologiste Wojciech Jastrzebowski dès 1857. L’ergonomie associée aux nouvelles technologies et à la conception d’interfaces numériques, a vu le jour dans les années 80 sous le nom de HCI ou IHM (version française) avec l’apparition du premier ouvrage sur le sujet “ Human Factors in Computing Systems” écrit par Gaithersburg. S = (C/T) x P Grâce à des enregistrements audiovisuels, des interviews et des questionnaires, l’évaluateur vient compléter, par une évaluation qualitative, la mesure précédente.

Responsive Web Design: I Hope It’s For Real This Time As many in the dev community are aware, earlier this week A Book Apart released their latest title, Responsive Web Design by Ethan Marcotte. Due to the fact that I’ve been so busy with other stuff of late, I honestly have not experimented much with responsive design techniques and the related CSS3 media queries. I intend to read Ethan’s book and will eventually get around to incorporating some of these techniques into future projects, and I’m hoping to eventually have a responsive layout for this site. But there are a few things about this whole responsive design trend that concern me a little bit. I Thought Fluid-Width Sites Sucked? UPDATE: (June 14/2011) In this section, I’m not saying that full-width fluid layouts are the same as responsive layouts; but the underlying concept is the same. I’m definitely one of those developers who has coded fixed-width layouts pretty much exclusively. Make ‘Em Good There have been arguments against the use of media queries (I know, media queries !

Astuce : Utiliser Facebook Connect pour de la pré-inscription Après plus d’une année d’existence Facebook Connect est un succès : Les chiffres le confirment (60 millions d’utilisateurs et 80.000 sites y ont recours) et les arguments ne manquent pas (Pourquoi intégrer Facebook Connect sur votre site ?). La révolution est telle que MySpace et Yahoo! utilisent maintenant cette solution : MySpace to adopt Facebook Connect et Yahoo brings Facebook Connect into its sites. Nous sommes tous d’accord pour dire que c’est une révolution pour faire de l’authentification douce (en 1 clic) qui va de plus favoriser la viralité, idéale pour les commentaires d’un blog ou pour participer à une opération événementielle. OK… mais quid de l’utilisation de Facebook Connect pour de l’authentification sur le long terme ? Autrement formulé : Facebook Connect de même que Twitter Sign in sont-elles des solutions viables pour de la création de compte ? En fait il y a deux options :
