How does your SharePoint site handle the growing number of devices that are or will be soon accessing your site? Traditional branding for SharePoint has its shortcomings with modern devices. In this session we will review available options to enhance SharePoint and create a unified experience across modern internet devices with an in-depth review of current trends and how to utilize them in your current or upcoming SharePoint project. We will finish by considering how this might be impacted by SharePoint 2013.
Session Take-aways:
As an introduction session to modern Internet devices and how they affect the presentation of a SharePoint 2010 site, each attendee should leave the session with a solid understanding of how different devices and viewports treat SharePoint including the good and the bad. Further they will have been exposed to multiple techniques and methods in which SharePoint can be modified to enhance SharePoint for modern Internet devices including tablets and smartphones with a look at the benefits and shortcomings of each method. After a review of SharePoint 2013's addition of devices channels, attendees will also learn how to leverage this new understanding of Internet devices with device channels for a truly usable, maintainable SharePoint branding initiative moving forward.

Learn the shortcomings of SharePoint's interface with modern Internet devices.
See modern techniques Branding experts use to solve the mobile problems.
Find out how to leverage this knowledge in SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013.

  • Recording sessionSlides will be available from blog and twitterOverview talk of SharePoint and new devices Light on tech and howto Don’t worry tech folks, many resources at end.
  • Recording session and will make available on blog and twitter, so if you remember one of those then you can always review everything we discuss
  • mobile is invading, for the good, all organizations. if not now then in the next few years.Iphone is estimated to provide 1/3% of gdp.
  • What, you think your next web initiative is only going to last a few years? How long did you last intranet or public facing site last?Built towards to future, not the past, you MUST consider tablets and smart phones at the least
  • MrZeldman founded A List Apart, best practices and innovations in web design.sure, you can zoom in on many smart phones or tablets, but what if you can make tailored experience for each device?Modern devices share basic ability with css, js though which his a plus
  • Let’s look at what we have OOTB as well as with just minor modifications.Stay away from total code re-write
  • Build particular interfaces for specific devices SP 2010 has mobile detection, but it's not good, and difficult to brand What about 2013? We will get to thatDesign and code an interface that can scale itself to different devices
  • Based only on specific user agentsMobile pages do not use master pages, you can modify redirection create mobile control template based on site definition create a mobile adapter for web partLeaving a lot out because I don’t like it, too basic
  • Html is very clean and simpleUsing javascript to determine functionality and add on features as allowed.Yahoo, amazon, etc
  • A true PE site should work without JS, SP will not do that.Tables and inline styles breaks the idea of separating content and presentation.
  • fluid proportion-based grids (which use percentages pixels) to adapt the layout to the viewing environmentAll clients effectively load the entire page but using css, hides or replaces elements to tailor the experience to the screen.DOES NOT USE USERAGENT, browser detection, rather works of screen width.Early adopter AIDS.gov
  • Mississippi Department of IT
  • Midwest Tool Manufacture
  • European Alternative Energy Company
  • Uses css3 media queries and js, which is ok with SP.Turn mobile view off in compat.browser found in web applications directory. Look it up.Issues are on next slide.
  • Also a lot of overhead, but SP already has a lot of that as well.Not IE7 and IE8 friendlyRequire CSS3? There is a js ability with jQuery’s help.Does a mobile user need the same information as a desktop user?Adding information vs consuming information. Less real estate and is the navigation necessarily the same?http://mobile.smashingmagazine.com/2012/08/22/separate-mobile-responsive-website-presidential-smackdown/
  • Coding techniques to get around some overhead combine files, minimize scripts use wrapper divs that keep large images off mobile browsers
  • SPD (some limits), Visual Studio, Firebug, Browser issues
  • Device Channels work only with Publishing Sites Allow for one interface for all desktops and another for most tablets let's say.Only 10 device channels per site collection, but do you really want to maintain 10 MP’s?
  • In 2010 I suggest RWD as it is the most compatible with SP allows for the targeting of most devices, Needs one Master pageIn 2013 still use RWD, but you can think about DC for particular devices if the need arises One primary interface that will work with most devices have the ability to allow a target for a few particular devices easier to manage 2-3 branding efforts rather than many if you attempted to tailor your site to all devices.
