About this website

My aim for this site is to show a decent responsive design and a website implemented using several commonly used Open Source technologies.

Front End

Foundation framework

Foundation offers a customizable responsive grid system for targeting any screen size or device and several modules for common types of User Interface elements.

Interchange

Foundation's Interchange module takes care of loading just the kinds of images your device needs: svg vector-based images for devices that support it, retina images for high-dpi screens and fallback images for everything else.
