This site, at the time of writing at least, uses HTML5, CSS3, Skeleton and ASP.NET 4.5 web forms. Webforms simply because my last file-new project template
was MVC4 and I like to vary the ASP.NET technologies. HTML5 CSS3 and Skeleton because I was due a little focus on client side development ... after all, this is where I started 20 years ago. Things have changed a bit.
Skeleton is an example of a responsive design framework that uses various techniques to elegantly scale to downsized browser windows, tablets, mobile phones (in landscape and portrait). Go on
- try scaling your browser window down in size and see what happens. Or try this site in your mobile phone. Note that you will need IE9 or a similarly HTML5/ CSS3 compliant browser - IE8 or similar will not cut the mustard.
Obviously all this is increasingly important in this multi-device world. More detail is available within
the news article I wrote or the very similar blog entry!
The next project might be to similarly convert over our in-house CMS, or perhaps onto Windows 8, Windows Phone, Azure or a.n.other on my technology 'to do' list.
