Information Everywhere: Flexible Content with Responsive Design

5:30 pm - 5:45 pm - Networking and Refreshments

5:45 pm - 6:30 pm - STC Regional Competition Awards Ceremony

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm - Presentation and Q&A

Responsive design ʺfrees our contentʺ to work anywhere, anytime, and gets us back to developing and delivering quality content – where and when our customers need it. Adopting responsive design means that technical communicators no longer need to spend time designing and creating deliverables for different devices.

Technically, responsive design is ʺResponsive WEB designʺ, so we must deliver our help to the web to take advantage of all that RWD has to offer. But this is nothing new for technical communicators, since many of us have been delivering web based help systems for many years, and mobile help for a shorter time. Providing a single responsive output gives us the opportunity to create once and deliver to thousands of devices: new ones, older ones – and ones that don’t even exist yet.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

    • The power of responsive design

    • What responsive design is and how responsive design works

    • Six reasons why the time is right for responsive design (besides the flexibility)

    • Seven “mobile first” content development best practices for technical communicators

    • Where to find responsive design examples and resources
