Sometimes web design isn't all unicorns and rainbows and most likely your site isn't as simple as the one in the demo. Are you stuck with a cludgy out of date (or out of touch) CMS? Does your UI leave much to be desired? Are you tasked with a responsive project sans the luxury of an impending redesign? You're not alone. In this session we'll take a handful of common challenges with implementing responsive design and give you strategies for addressing the issues and keep your project moving forward. With a nod to best practices and separation of concerns, we'll explore practical approaches to overcoming ugly source code, problematic UI, and intrusive JavaScript, to help keep your projects on track. This session will have 4 30 minute sections with a 10 minute break in between. The sections will cover: Aesthetic Design and UI, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, and email.

- You should be comfortable with writing HTML and CSS including familiarity with Media Queries.

What to Bring:
- Bring your favorite source code editor and a machine to run it.
