The book begins with creating a home for all your patterns by setting up your own pattern library. Each chapter is broken down into different sections of a website; presenting patterns for each section. We move on to building responsive layouts of varying degrees of complexity to house the type of content you need. Develop menu systems and see which responsive navigation fits the size of your website. Next, you’ll learn tactics to present media and data elegantly on different screen sizes.
