Jeremy puts together two fantastic conferences in Responsive Day Out and dConstruct, both of which I will have attended for the first time by the end of the year and I don’t think there’s a coincidence in that. Responsive Day Out was a truly fantastic conference, and it was all down to the curation of the conference, because quite literally there wasn’t anything else.
As always, Orde Saunders took copious notes at Responsive Day Out 2. The man’s a machine!
Sally’s talk at Responsive Day Out 2 was really, really great—it kinda blew my mind. I’m so, so happy she agreed to be a part of the event.
Here’s her description of the day and the other talks. Pay attention to the closing call:
I didn’t get to meet everyone I wanted to, but you should all come back for dConstruct in September as I’m sure that it’ll be even better than this weekend was.

Unlike the experts, I haven’t had to make the transition from designing for desktop for years to suddenly becoming device agnostic, which is what I think the main issue seems to be.
This is the full text of Owen’s talk at the Responsive Day Out. It makes for a terrific read!

Sadly, the ol’ “web app” get-out-of-jail-free card is whipped out once more. You know the one I mean.

The slides from Owen’s magnificent talk at the Responsive Day Out …but you really had to be there.
Glenn’s notes from the Responsive Day Out. He thinks I brushed over the question of advertising (I don’t think I did, but no one topic got much airtime) and the question of “sites vs. apps”—that I did brush over: give me one good reason why we need to make a distinction (that nobody can agree on) between some sites and others. Seriously.
Everything old is new again. Ross noticed that many of the themes recurring at the Responsive Day Out hark back to best practices from over a decade ago: progressive enhancement, performance, good ol’ information architecture…

Some musings prompted by the Responsive Day Out. I don’t agree with everything here (I certainly don’t think any of the speakers were demonising Photoshop, and pointing the finger at browser makers to solve our problems doesn’t help with existing and older browsers) but it’s always interesting to hear what other people got from the event. I definitely agree with the final point that we need to be sharing more, and not just on the narrowband paltry medium of Twitter.

This was the crux of Elliot’s excellent talk at the Responsive Day Out. I heartily concur with this:
Once you overcome that initial struggle of adapting to a new process, designing and building responsive sites needn’t take any longer, or cost any more money. The real obstacle is designers and developers being set in their ways.
