About the Author:

Chip Lambert has been creating websites ever since his high schools days when he got his start doing fantasy sport websites. In addition to these 18 years of HTML experience, he has 13 years of experience with PHP and MySQL development. He is currently serving as Director of Applications Development at Bluefield College.

Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). RESS (responsive web design with server side components) approaches can provide a user experience that is better optimized for mobile devices.

Instant RESS Implementation How-to is an introduction to using server-side languages such as PHP to build a website that can easily adapt to whatever device the user visits the site with. This book will teach readers everything they need to know to get started with RESS and start on the journey to becoming a better web developer. It looks at a new way to build mobile websites that can still have the look and functionality of a normal website.

The book will enable readers to:

  • Check for features such as geolocation and web storage support.
  • Learn about ScientiaMobile’s new cloud based WURFL library
  • Use WURFL to check for iOS devices and display a banner for a iPhone/iPad app
  • Discover how mixing PHP and CSS can change the layout of a website
  • Learn how you can make device-specific web forms that look great no matter how they are viewed.

Instant RESS Implementation How-to is full of illustrations and tips with clear step-by-step instructions and practical examples. To know more about the book, and to check eBook purchasing options, please visit the Packt book-page.
