This month (19th June) we will be joined by Jonathan Fielding. Jonathan is web developer working in London, author of Beginning Responsive Design with HTML5 and CSS3 and contributor to open source. Projects that he has worked on include SimpleStateManager,, and Doccy.

Jonathan's session:

Building Better Experiences with Responsive Javascript

"Responsive design has thus far focused on using media queries to alter the way our site looks using CSS. The next step is to look at how we can progressively enhance our site based on the the features of the device. This is going beyond what CSS can offer and moving into the realms of responsive javascript. There are already new browser API’s are arriving to enables this, with the matchMedia API we can target specific functionality based on whether a media query matches.

Similarly we can add extra functionality and loads additional assets based upon features like geolocation and the camera. This is not building separate sites, its just changing the functionality of a single site based on the users device to optimise their experience.
The aim of this talk is to help you learn about what you can do with responsive javascript. You will learn about how you can target specific functionality to different types of devices which enable you to optimise your user experience."

NOTE: We'll be meeting from 7:30pm and kicking off the sessions at 7:45pm which leaves plenty of time to have a drink and a chat in the bar afterwards.
