Fundamentals of Responsive Images

By Marc Drummond.

"…The payoff for this effort is that your images look nice and crisp
at all viewport sizes, while still downloading efficiently. No more
super slow mobile sites that take forever to load images! That makes a
huge difference for those visiting your site. Downloading image files
tends to be a big chunk of the work that browsers do when visiting a
new site. Speed that up and everybody wins."

UX Without Users Isn't UX (Video)

By Hoa Loranger.

Many organizations claim to be user-centric. Yet they fail to include
users in the development process. Without customer input,
organizations risk creating bad interfaces.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3Yk8JQFgvM



Mobile UX Isn't Just About Breakpoints

By Thomas Fogarasy.

"…Responsive design, therefore, should not be used for its own sake,
or because it's the modern way of creating interfaces. Before jumping
into it's toolset, and starting to rearrange boxes, clear goals should
be set based on how, where, and why people will eventually interact
with the product you design."
