With these recent trends driving changes in design, typical desktop-only websites fail to meet even minimum expectations when it comes to style and usability, which can be vital when your website is central to yours or your client's brand.

Chapter example code is all hosted on rwd.education, a dedicated site for the book, built by the author, using the approaches and techniques championed throughout. Style and approach This book should be useful in two ways: as a 'read from the beginning and learn as you go' resource but also as a reference you can come back to in the months to come – when trying to remember this or that syntax or look up a link that may help you out of a development hell-hole. To this end, rather than follow a single design through from chapter one and build on it incrementally until the end of the book, each chapter exists in relative isolation. This means that code and examples are particular to each chapter and don't need to be considered along with what has gone before or after. That doesn't mean that each chapter's techniques won't work in unison; the reference site for this book, rwd.education is an example of them all working in harmony. However, by limiting the chapter examples to the topic at hand, it should be simpler for you to understand and reference the essence of each example and topic in the future.
