We don't build them like we used to - The Design and UX Track

We are in the midst of a huge change. Websites are no longer bound to the desktop screen. Interfaces are expected to adapt as users interact with them in different contexts. The web is changing and so is the way in which we build it.

We can no longer assume that our designs are going to be viewed within a fixed size viewport. By laying a solid design foundation and defining patterns, we position our web applications to adapt to whatever screen and device the future throws at us.
