Responsive Web Design Toolkit

Written for Designers & Developers

I wrote this book with friends in mind. Designers who have become developers. Imagining how a website looks, and then writing the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript making it real.

They are talented and tenacious, but they are not well equipped to code, test, and debug responsive and mobile-first sites. I have a plan to help them, and you.

An entire history of fantastic tools exists stuck in the domain of software engineers. Tools that will empower designers and developers to make amazing things.

My book collects those tools by assembling them into a single box of awesome within your reach.
