The Omega Drupal 7 Base Theme is a highly configurable HTML5/960 grid base theme that uses built-in media queries to make the site responsive. Each zone, or group of regions, can be configured for content-driven layouts that reformat depending on the device’s screen size.
Mediacurrent recently partnered with Acquia to record this webinar. In it Kendall explains the theory behind Omega's mobile-first approach, helping achieve best results whether on desktop, tablet or smartphone.

The AdaptiveTheme for Drupal 7 is a great HTML5 base theme that makes it easy to build out a responsive website quickly. It comes with a plethora of built-in extensions and polyfills to combat differences in browsers, devices and operating systems. It also expands on the basic idea of "smartphones" and "tablets" to include portrait and landscape versions of each.
If you are accustomed to editing the Drupal template files to control the layout of your theme, you can do what you've always done. The difference is that AdaptiveTheme has some built-in options to rearrange sidebar and content regions on mobile devices.

Last night I was working on a project where the mockups called for some assymetrical button shapes that were all different sizes. Rather than creating a half a dozen background images for each button length, I wondered if I might just use an SVG or Scalable Vector Graphic file as the background which I could then stretch as needed. As you know, there's no penalty of pixelation when stretching SVGs because they are not based on pixels. This would also save a lot of load time on the site, as I can load one vector image instead of half a dozen pixel-based images.

There are a lot of ways to handle navigation in general, because “best practices” for mobile are still being sorted out. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution because everyone has different needs for their site, and their menus are organized differently.

The Omega Drupal 7 Base Theme is a highly configurable HTML5/960 grid base theme that uses built-in media queries to make the site responsive. Each zone (group of regions) can be configured for content-first layouts, that resize and rearrange themselves depending on the screen size of the user's device.
The presentation will walk-through the theory behind Omega's mobile-first approach, how to use the many configuration options on the theme settings page, and pitfalls to avoid.

Last Friday the Drupal community in Tampa enjoyed our third Drupal Co-Working Event at Tampa Bay WaVE. It was slightly smaller than in past months, but in some ways, this worked better in my humble opinion. For me, it has been a challenge in the past to stay focused and to get a lot of real work done. With less people though, the environment felt calmer and even a bit quieter.

If you checked out the Inside Look at the Omega Theme blog post a few months ago, you may be eager to re-theme your Drupal site to take advantage of the awesome capabilities of Responsive Design. There are, however, a few more modules you may want to pair with the Omega theme when tackling your mobile site design.
With the Delta module, you can build custom page layouts by making new versions of the theme settings page; then apply those unique layouts on particular pages, sections, or user roles via the Context module. While designed specifically...

Drupal on the Bayou has come to a close, and it was a fun couple of days. This was the smallest Drupal event I've been to, but every dynamic has its advantages. Maybe it's my own personal perception, but I felt as if the small size made everyone much more approachable. Everything was a bit more relaxed and informal, but that made it feel that much more cozy.
I met some great folks from the New Orleans area and elsewhere and learned quite a lot. Here's my recap:
