In this course, Chaz Chumley takes you through the process of transitioning a Drupal website to a responsive model that automatically tailors and sizes content for a wide range of displays, from desktops to mobile devices. The course starts with setting up the Drupal environment in Acquia and defines some basic principles of responsive design before moving on to creating a new Drupal theme with fluid layouts, fluid media, and responsive tables and forms.
