High Performance Responsive Design, Paperback / softback Book

High Performance Responsive Design Paperback / softback


Yes, you can use responsive web design to create high performance, compelling websites.

With this practical book, author Tom Barker demonstrates that responsive design is not just a frontend-only approach, but also a philosophy for taking advantage of the entire web stack.

Responsive design 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 Node.js for device-specific functionality on the backend, and write automated tests for a continuous integration 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.
