Creating adaptive interfaces is challenging, but thankfully the Web community is hard at work creating flexible, downright innovative design patterns. In this workshop, we’ll look at how to handle anything you can put onto a Web interface in a responsive way. We’ll cover important layout patterns, navigation both simple and complex, conditional loading, the ever-confusing topic of responsive images, tricky elements like data tables and maps, forms, and a whole lot more!
Our interfaces are going more places than ever before, so it's essential to break UIs into their atomic elements in order for us create smart, scalable, maintainable designs. This session will introduce atomic design, a methodology for creating robust interface design systems. We’ll cover how to apply atomic design to implement your very own design system in order to set you, your organization and clients up for success.
