Responsive Design for SharePoint 2013

I have been wanting to write about this topic for quite some time. In this post I will review what all this buzz is about around Responsive design and relate it back to SharePoint 2013.

In this post I will not be focusing on any of the Twitter bootstrap or HTML5 boilerplate stuff. I will simply be focusing on CSS3 Media Queries and how it relates to SharePoint 2013.

In the video below I have put together some discussion points around min-width vs. max-width and also different ways that you can make SharePoint 2013 responsive with just CSS.

Per the video above here is the code that I referenced:

Simple Responsive CSS

Custom Responsive CSS

Overall I wish there were more standards on how and when to use these media queries. I will be looking forward to your comments and suggestions for more topics.
