2013 was the Year of Responsive Web Design, according to Mashable. More people than ever are visiting websites from mobile devices—recent estimates say as many as 40%. It’s also easier than ever to accommodate mobile visitors, but how can we go even further and make sure they’re getting the best possible user experience?

At this summer’s edition of the Digital Pond, we’ll hear professionals share their experiences with responsive web design, their knowledge of current best practices, and their predictions for the future. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the experts and network with lots of likeminded people.



Jeremy Keith (@adactio) lives in Brighton where he serves as Rear Admiral of the Responsive Fleet at design agency Clearleft. He’s the curator of the dConstruct conference as well as Responsive Day Out, and he organised the world’s first Science Hack Day. Jeremy has written three books about JavaScript and HTML5.

Sally Jenkinson (@sjenkinson) is a freelance technical consultant based in Colchester. She has worked with a range of brands and digital agencies on projects for clients including Nokia, Electronic Arts, BT, and UTV. Sally aims to get people talking and thinking about technology in a creative way, and to use it to improve user experiences.

Who should attend?

This event is for anyone looking to learn more about usability, user experience (UX) and design—particularly in the context of the responsive web. Even if you are not a designer, you will still come away having learned about some of the most important concepts when it comes to web production and project management.

If you are involved in the process of designing, building or conceiving a new web project, you do not want to miss this.
