Gone are the days of developing just for desktop viewers. Whether its tablets, games systems, or the exploding smart phone market developers have never been more challenged to make a site "work" across a
dizzying array of resolutions. What's a good code monkey to do?

Coined by Ethan Marcotte just last year, "Responsive Web Design" promises to be a solution. RWD is about best leveraging your existing website assets to create a beautiful experience on screens from 320x240 to 1600x900 (and beyond). In this presentation Matthew Reinbold will present what Responsive Web Design is, discuss how its initial client-side implementation has some drawbacks, and show how we
can leverage the power of ColdFusion to create an elegant hybrid client AND server-side solution.
