The Mobile Web
Users expect mobile applications that are responsive, aesthetically appealing, and leverage device capabilities. As web technologies evolve, they promise to transform how we develop mobile applications. Exceeding user expectations require a departure from the traditional web application development model and demands we take a new approach to using web technologies to deliver compelling mobile web applications.
In this session, we’ll examine how mobile web apps are different from traditional websites. We’ll see how to develop mobile web apps that can be used offline, examine the current state of HTML5 support by mobile browsers, and take a look at several mobile web frameworks. We’ll explore concepts like responsive design and mobile first, and we’ll share several resources you can use to get started building mobile web apps. We’ll touch on how to use your mobile web app as the starting point for an app you deliver through the application stores and examine the future of the mobile web. Before we wrap up, we’ll develop a simple mobile web app.
