Captured on video and shown here for the first time is Dan Cederholm's 2010 presentation at An Event Apart. It's the seed that gave birth to Dan's best-selling book, CSS3 For Web Designers.

Dan is the author of four best-selling books: CSS3 For Web Designers (A Book Apart), Bulletproof Web Design 3rd Edition (New Riders), Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design with Ethan Marcotte (New Riders), and Web Standards Solutions (Apress/Friends of ED).

He embraces flexible, adaptable design using web standards through his client work, writing, and speaking.
Dan also runs a popular blog where he writes articles and commentary on the web, technology and life. And he plays a mean ukulele.
The presentation that launched a thousand redesigns!
From mobile browsers to netbooks and tablets, users are visiting your sites via an increasing array of devices and browsers. Android devices come in over 500 "standard" viewport sizes and don't even agree what a "pixel" is.
Are your web designs and applications ready for this challenging world of ever-shifting canvases and contexts?
In this historic presentation, Ethan Marcotte, author of Responsive Web Design (A Book Apart, 2011), introduces responsive design at An Event Apart San Diego 2010.
Using methods that involve fluid grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries, Ethan encourages designers to think beyond the desktop, and shows how to craft beautiful site layouts that anticipate and respond to your users’ needs.
