Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a giant leap in the right direction for web on mobile devices. However, RWD is just a small part of the big picture. What we really want is for the whole value chain to be responsive, not only what happens in the browser.

This talk is mainly for front end developers who what to gain insight into how server side best practices can make a web site leaner, lighter and faster for the diversity of devices out there. Sometimes this technique is called RESS or Adaptive Design. The talk is based on a real life case where RWD and performance are key elements.

The audience will gain insights into how their next project can perform even better in mobile devices and smart ways to reduce data traffic, increase speed, and be more future friendly by utilizing the server for heavy-lifting and desicion making.
