Getting Up To Speed With Responsive Web Design

Due to the enormous diversity of devices being used for accessing Web Apps, it has become imperative to develop Web Apps in a way such that they are usable and attractive on devices of varying screen sizes and capabilities. Here’s a presentation which will provide a bird’s eye view of the techniques useful for building Responsive Web Apps. It is based on the talks I have given on the topic.

The presentation is made using Impress.js. It offers better visual effects and control over the flow of slides than apps like Powerpoint, so decided to give it a try. The website runs on a bare-bones Node.js app hosted on OpenShift.

Top reasons for using application-wide unique IDs in HTML

There are many advantages to using ID attributes in your HTML that are unique not only to a page, but unique to the entire app.

This is especially more useful while working on someone else’s project. Whenever styles for a specific ID are changed, one can be sure that the new styles won’t be affecting any of the elements on other pages.

Application-wide unique IDs also help reduce testing time and efforts. One doesn’t have to check the entire app to be sure that they haven’t messed up anything due to their recent changes.
