Responsive Web Design is Five

Today, the idea of responsive web design turns five. An Event Apart posted about the anniversary of Ethan Marcotte’s talk in Seattle in 2010 where he first proposed the idea.

I listened to the talk today, which I hadn’t heard before. I remember first reading the canonical A List Apart article on the subject at my job when I first jumped into web work. My first thought? “I have to make this happen on our site.” As the anniversary post points out:

After that day, nothing in web design or development would ever be the same.
