It took nearly four years, four proposed standards, the formation of a community group, and a funding campaign to pay for development, but we finally got what we've been clamoring for—a solution for responsive images baked into browsers. Now the hard work begins.

In this 60-minute presentation, captured live at An Event Apart Austin, Jason Grigsby shows us how to use the new responsive image specifications, which ones are appropriate for which images, and how to tackle the riddle of responsive image breakpoints.

Jason Grigsby got his first mobile phone in 2000, and has been obsessed ever since with how the world could be a better place if everyone had access to the world's information in their pockets.
