I love learning adaptive and responsive design. I’ve been experimenting a bit and am ready to embark on my first journey of coding an entire site on my own.
When coding a site, should I code for the one specific media first, or should I code for all at once?
Hmmm… I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking. When you say ‘media’ do you mean smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, etc.?
If you already have the design completed, you should try to go mobile-first. You’ll find a lot of articles available with that phrase, should help ya!
there are so many different approaches you can take, with pros and cons to each.
i’m not going to list all the options here but the two i’ve personally found to be the most maintainable are the [goldilocks approach](http://goldilocksapproach.com/), and (the current technique i use) [nesting media queries with Sass](http://sass-lang.com/docs/yardoc/file.SASS_REFERENCE.html#media).
Thanks! That’s some very useful information.
