I talked about “Responsive Web Design and concrete5”, a case study of concrete5 web site made with Foundation framework.

Kimiya Sato (@kimiya) talked about “Development with crowd sourcing and concrete5”, and his talk inspired us to make project management more creative on GitHub. concrete5 is not only a web design tool, but also a powerful framework for collaborative web development.
