Q & A

- Life beyond the final breakpoint

- How do you deal with a grid when you start with mobile first?
- Ems, rems, percentages, etc. in responsive design, including media queries. (Link about using em’s for breakpoints)
- What is a good UI/UX conference to go to?
- How do you deal with the “view desktop version | view mobile version” thing?
- Who’s responsive design would be better? Batman or Flash?

Q & A
- Why is there no element? And the Scooby-Doo algorithm.
