EE Podcast

The latest episode of The ExpressionEngine Podcast is now live and available for your listening pleasure!

For Episode 52, Lea and I discuss the distinction between responsive web design and dedicated mobile sites. We also talked about EllisLab's recent announcement to pull the official mobile theme from ExpressionEngine, as well as options for creating a dedicated mobile site with EE.

Episode #52

The overwhelming focus of Mobile Sites with EE discussion, though, was the two-phase process I've been taking for the ee-podcast.com site itself, starting with a flexible grid and layout.

I talk to Lea about the reasoning for choosing a flexible layout vs. fixed-width, and the challenges I had dealing with all that fucking math. I also touch on plans for phase two: implementing media queries.

Have a listen yourself.

Stay Tuned!

For our next episode, Lea and I will discuss online data gathering with surveys, quizzes and polls. Be sure to check out our schedule for other great topics coming soon, and be sure to tune in to future episodes! Subscribe to our RSS or listen on iTunes.

Also stayed tuned to this blog, as I will be writing about my responsive efforts with the ee-podcast.com site in the coming weeks.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
