Build Responsively Workshop: 2013 Update

Where our traveling RWD workshop has been and where it's going in 2013.

Are you just venturing into responsive design? Or are you looking to learn more about best practices, recent industry developments, and challenging hurdles? No matter where you hit the spectrum, Build Responsively has a lot to offer you.

This year, we teamed up with respected conferences across the country to add the Build Responsively workshop to their offerings. And it’s helped us realize our hope to hit more cities, develop more content, and meet even more of you!

We’ve Been Everywhere, Man

We felt like Johnny Cash this year. Ok, maybe we haven’t been everywhere, but we’ve had a great run this year and enjoyed getting to meet many of you along the way!

As of writing this, we’re in Jacksonville, Florida, at Converge FL (September 11-13, 2013). Earlier in the year, we were also able to bring Build Responsively to Artifact in Austin, Texas (May 13-15, 2013); Converge SE in Columbia, South Carolina (April 25-27, 2013); and In Control in Orlando, Florida (February 17-19, 2013).

What People are Saying

Ben and his team are not only seasoned professionals who do this type of work in a production setting day in and day out, they are superb instructors who can explain the complexities of both the technical and design oriented parts of Responsive Design without alienating either type of attendee. As long as Sparkbox is producing workshops, we'll be working with them on all of our events.

- Gene Crawford, Converge

Sparkbox & The Build Responsively team have an excellent reputation as leaders in Responsive Design, adapting new techniques and practices daily for high-profile, real-world clientele. They bring a wealth of experience and an easy-going manner to workshop attendees, leaving each group with plenty of practical information and a gameplan for ‘making it work.’ Our attendees really love the Build Responsively workshops!
