Mobile devices are quickly becoming the primary access method for many types of UA. However,
adapting content to a small screen can be extremely challenging. Mobile devices also have their
own advantages/disadvantages over desktop PCs that need to be considered. As a final
challenge, we are often required to (somehow) single source our content for print. Designing for
mobile, desktop, and print at the same time might initially seem impossible. In this session, we will
discuss your options to make the impossible possible.
