Build Responsively: Columbus Wrap-up

07-17-12 Sparkbox

Our second Build Responsively Workshop is in the books. A special guest appearance from the über smart Ethan Marcotte and some fantastic sponsors made for a fun two-day event.

We concluded our second Build Responsively Workshop in Columbus last week and the Discovery City did not disappoint. A room full of eager web builders made for great company as we opened up our expanded agenda of responsive content. The extended two-day workshop included new emerging patterns in RWD, responsive retrofitting, and some responsive JavaScript which is becoming more and more essential in Sparkbox projects.

A great opening night party courtesy of super sponsor Github ended Day One on a high note, and a live video chat with RWD evangelist Ethan Marcotte made for a fantastic start to our Day Two. We got great feedback from workshoppers, and we had a great time ourselves. Thanks for having us, Columbus!

We’re also more than happy to give an additional shoutout to our amazing group of sponsors. Rosenfeld Media and A Book Apart provided some must-have books for workshopper give-aways. Adobe graciously gave away a copy of their essential Creative Suite 6. Github sponsored beers all around. And our friends at Applied Information Sciences came through to support the workshop as a whole. Thanks for making it happen!
