MIT Presents: "Layout Design Patterns"
Most current CSS methodologies, such as SMACSS or BEM, revolve around one core concept–components must look and behave the same no matter where they are placed in a layout. Despite layouts being a fundamental aspect of responsive design, more attention is paid to components than layouts. In this session, John Ferris focuses on reusable solutions to common layout problems by beginning with foundation CSS layout concepts and building up to specific techniques for implementing complex layouts in Drupal. Produced by MIT.
