You’re a smart cookie. If someone asks you to build a responsive accordion, you’ll figure it out. The same goes for a table. Or a calendar. Or, God forbid, a multi-level-mega-drop-down. But how would you go around slightly more complicated components?

What if you had to build a sophisticated car configurator with a real-time updated 3D view? What about an advanced mortgage calculator? How about a feature comparison table, a music festival schedule, an election map, an airfare booking and check-in, a live world football championship leaderboard and a theatre map seat selection? In this session, we’ll take a microscopic examination of common interface components and problems appearing in responsive user interfaces.

We’ll cover them all: both from the design and from the development perspective – with a dash of obscure and creative approaches. Keep in mind: you won’t be able to unsee the things you’ll see in this session. Yes, it’s going to be dirty, tricky, and horribly annoying at times. You’ll leave with a toolbox of practical techniques that you’ll be able to apply to your work right away. And potentially some tips for saving money on airfare, too!
