Responsive Web and Adaptive Web: The Pros and Cons

Both responsive web design (RWD) and adaptive web design (AWD) enhance the user experience across different devices.

My Lesson About Responsive Web and Image Scaling

I recently lead the responsive web design project for our corporate website and I learned a few things that developers and QA practitioners should keep in mind when building and delivering a great digital experience. Our new site was designed and developed with the help of Cyberwoven and Duality, our new brand designers.
