1: Develop a responsive website with no jQuery, no JavaScript, no Media Queries.

I know what you are thinking...

It cannot be done.

As of today, February 20, 2018 I manage about 80 active websites.

By the way you are now reading one of those 80 websites and yes this website is viewable without jQuery, JavaScript or Media Queries.

Plus...

It is responsive.

How to check if a web page is responsive...

If you do not have a mobile smart phone with you, you can test this page or any page on the Internet to see if the page is responsive on a desktop or laptop.

How...

Place the cursor on the left or right side edge of the web browser you are using to read this web page.

Next drag in to make the browser window smaller in width, let go of your mouse or track pad to see how everything repositions itself. Repeat again to make the width smaller.

If the page is responsive once you get to between 440px - 320px wide you will see all the contents line up under each other in one column and if its not responsive the page content will disappear off the left or right side of the screen.

The following links are other responsive websites viewable on any mobile smart phone.

2: Why is jQuery, JavaScript and Media Queries used to create a web page.

jQuery and/or JavaScript...

To extend the functionality of html.

Media Queries...

To adjust a web page to fit and be viewable on different width screens.

Why are websites using excessive amounts of jQuery, JavaScript and Media Queries that bloats and may slow the page loading.

Answer...

Because since about 2013 practically all websites are generated by computer program code eg. WordPress, except all the sites we develop.

You can see this by right clicking anywhere on a web page that is not text or a picture on a web page and selecting "view page source".

Note...

Before you right click write down or remember a few words at or near the top of the web page, generally the large h1 text, then after opening the source code page if you see numerous lines of code before you see the text you wrote down or remembered this will tell you its a computer generated page such as WordPress.

As we said above you can develop a web page without using jQuery, JavaScript or Media Queries if the code is written by a person.

Depending what is on the web page to save 1 - 2 seconds of download time a small piece of Javascipt and one or two Media Queries maybe required.

...this page does not require...
jQuery, JavaScript or Media Queries

3: Brief history about our company.

In January 1994 when I owned a manufacturing and export business I read an article about the Internet.

During the next few weeks I read more articles and thought this could be a cost effective method for my company to promote the products we have been exporting to America and a few European countries since late 1990.

My company's factory and office was and still is today, February 20, 2018 in Perth, Western Australia.

From my research in 1994 there were only two companies in Perth, Western Australia both set up in late 1993 to develop websites.

I contacted both, one wanted $10,000 and the other $8,500 basically to walk into their offices to discuss my requirements.

I am not joking
$10,000 and $8,500 to basically talk to them.

I thought how hard can it be to develop a website...

I had been using a computer for a number of years in my company prior to 1994.

I checked there was no night school to teach web development.

So I went into Perth to look round the four large book shops to see if there were any books on web development, you know the type teach yourself something in 24 hours.

The first three Book Shops did not have any books but the forth one said they have a few, I looked through them and bought one.

I started to read this 498 page book on the train going home, after some trial and error I built my first website and used it until June 30, 2001 when I closed that business.

In August 2001 I started a new Internet based business named Private House Sale.

Skip forward to today, February 20, 2018 I am still...

I did say brief history...

4: Responsive websites good or bad.

One website viewable on every screen width
including ones that have not been developed yet.

This is a great benefit for all small to medium size businesses.

Why...

Just imagin the cost savings when you only have one website to manage allowing anyone to view it no matter the device they are viewing it on.

From memory back in 1988 my first Computer screen was the latest 640 pixels wide, skip forward to today, February 20, 2018 screen resolutions are over 2560 pixels wide, who knows what's coming next.

I cannot speak for other web developers but in 2002 when the average screen resolution was 800 pixels wide I developed websites at a fixed width of 780 pixels wide.

Not too long after 1024 pixel wide screen were sold therefore the fixed width 780 pixel wide websites I developed were still viewable and looked good.

In fact my fixed width 780 pixel wide websites still look good on any screen resolution above but they are not viewable as they were designed on a mobile phone screen.

This is why you need a responsive website so its viewable from 320 pixels wide up to a smart TV screen.

The Smart Phone

I am not 100% sure as I do not remember and as there is so much conflicting information on the Internet, lets say the smart phone with most of the bells and whistle of the current year, 2018 have been available since sometime between 2012 - 2013.

So the question is...

Should you have a responsive website.

The simple answer is...

YES

5: Some of the problems with computer generated code responsive websites.

If you want to use a program to produce bloated computer generated code to develop a responsive website there are programs available but we won't use them for many reasons.

Some of the problems using programs to generate the code for responsive websites include:

Note...

The websites we develop LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME no matter if you view them on a desktop, laptop or mobile phone.

We do not use a hamburger menu.

We do not hide
the menu when viewing on a mobile phone.

Detailed problems with computer generated code responsive websites.

For the above and other reasons
WE DO NOT USE
programs that generated computer code.

6: A responsive website is the future of web development therefore what is the best method to create and maintain a responsive website.

Answer...

Depends who you talk to.

If the web developer has been developing websites like myself since 1994 then the answer is write the code as you have control over the whole site's contents.

But if someone started their web developer career after 2003 (when WordPress became available) then no doubt they would say WordPress or one of the other content management systems.
