Book Description

Yes, you can use responsive to create high performance, compelling websites. With this practical book, author Tom Barker demonstrates that responsive is not just a frontend-only approach, but also a philosophy for taking advantage of the entire web stack. Responsive patterns and anti-patterns, derived from heavily used real-world sites, are guiding principles throughout the book.

Ideal for frontend-focused web developers, this book shows you how to incorporate responsiveness and performance into your project plan, use for device-specific functionality on the backend, and write automated tests for a continuous environment. You’ll explore many useful tools and responsive frameworks, and gain useful insights from Barker’s own experience with responsive design along the way.

  • Get a primer on web performance concepts, web runtime performance, and performance tracking tools
  • Write functionality with Node.js that serves up a device-specific experience to the client
  • Explore client-side solutions, such as lazy loading entire sections of a page—including images, styling, and content
