In Detail

Responsive design is the future of web design allowing you to have great UX across a variety of devices, screens, and resolutions. Foundation is a best-in-class web framework that allows rapid prototyping to quickly create production-ready sites. Using the power of Compass and Sass, Foundation gives you full creative control while allowing for extreme front end optimization along with quick customization and modification of the framework.

This book will teach you everything you need to know about responsive design and modern UX by showing you how to build some great websites that use the Foundation framework. Starting with simple responsive sites, you will learn how to create interactivity and even build a WordPress theme. You will learn about responsive design by building a responsive resume so your recruiter can hire you right from their cell phone. In your next project, you will create an awesome site for your next open source project.

How about building an automatically touch-enabled gallery site for an artist? This book will show you exactly how to do that. Furthermore, you will learn how to share news with a jQuery enabled aggregator, build a dashboard for your business, market and sell your digital wares using Gumroad or Paypal, and build a landing page for your next app. Better yet, you will learn how to build your next app using Foundation using mobile app look-a-like techniques.
