KDnuggets New Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Design


Check KDnuggets new responsive, mobile-friendly design and different new features, including more ways to access our rich content.



Although the traditional image of data scientists is that they work on large computers with large screens, smartphone usage is growing everywhere, even among KDnuggets visitors.

In Q1 2014, only 10.4% of KDnuggets visits were from mobile phones (84.1% from desktops, and 5.5% from tablets). In Q4 2015, the mobile usage doubled to 20.8% of all visits (74.2% from desktops, and 5.0% from tablets).

To go along with the times, we launched a responsive-design, mobile friendly site on Jan 1, 2016.

Now when you access www.kdnuggets.com on your desktop, you see 3 column format, but if you access it on mobile phone, the layout changes to a mobile-friendly single column.
