Presented by Gail Rahn Frederick at Mobile Portland in March 2009
Best practices for the desktop web simply do not apply to mobile web development. Mobile is a totally new medium. A standards-based approach to mobile web development produces a usable, adaptive and discoverable mobile web experience for featurephones and smartphones.
Gail will lead a discussion about the importance of standards-based mobile web development a this month's Mobile Portland. She will cover markup fundamentals, design principles, content adaptation, usability and interoperability. We will explore and critique mobile standards and best practices authored by the W3C, dotMobi and similar organizations.
