Responsive design seems to be a buzzword on the tip of everyone’s tongue these days. Lately, there has been a lot of emphasis surrounding the concept of creating web content for cross-compatibility. Web developers have begun to eliminate the need to develop multiple sites that display the same content across desktop and mobile devices by taking advantage of advanced techniques made possible through HTML5 and CSS3. Today, instead of developing multiple sites which consume excess time to create and maintain, developers are now separating their content from their design and creating one single site that responsively interacts with all devices and platforms. This responsive technique has cut development time and maintenance substantially.
The topic of responsive design has now begun to enter the minds of technical writers. As a group of early adopters, technical writers are beginning to see the importance of developing their online content responsively. If you are behind on the subject of responsive design, check out this recently published whitepaper titled Responsive UX Design. It offers an in-depth analytical look at this progressive technology and how it is now affecting us as technical writers.
