This question already has an answer here:
I have been working as a UI/ UX engineer for more than three years. Three years aren't enough to have great knowledge but I have good knowledge on giving the user a good visual experience and a good experience while using the apps or web-sites I have developed.
I am now searching for a new job. I have been asked often if not most of the time on what is responsive design? I think the people who conduct interviews come in with a few points on responsive web-design and expect the candidate to answer those specific points. RWD(Responsive web-design) is a vast subject and keeps evolving from time to time. Which brings me to a quote from Albert Einstein "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." RWD is a highly subjective topic and doesn't have any hard and fast rules for its creation. I cannot copy Apple's website for my client and expect him to reap profits same as Apple. It works for Apple because it is Apple. I truly believe that there are no such hard and fast rules for RWD and that design and UX shall always evolve through time. Now what happens in the interview: I explain a few points and give them a few examples of good UI/ UX web-apps, websites and apps even quote a few designers, so far it's not been fruitful.
My question to everyone here?
How will you summarise in a few points what is responsive web-design?
