Rebuilding the Ship as it Sails: Making Large Legacy Sites Responsive - Philip James, Eventbrite

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Yes, making sites responsive can be a pain, especially larger, older sites that have been touched by many hands and which might have dark corners that people would prefer to avoid. But we all know how crucial it is to make more and more of our work responsive, and there are things you can do to make big pushes towards responsiveness easier. This talk will cover:

- The problem of making large sites responsive
- Techniques you can use in planning to help divide the work in a sane way
- Tools you can use and develop to make responsifying pages easier
- Tips on how to train all your engineers, backend, frontend, and otherwise, to be able to make pages responsive.

These lessons will be drawn from the example of Eventbrite, who went through a major responsive overhaul last year.
