Chapter 5. Viewport and Size

In the next couple of chapters, we'll explore other solutions to achieve the perfect responsive design for your project, mixing and matching them with the previous tips and tricks.

We'll start with a way to dynamically resize your content—and especially your type of course—based on the visible area of your screen.
