Mobile Web Design ~ The Series
~ 26 July 2005 ~
Think the mobile web finally has some legs to it? Or think it’s a folly not ready for prime time? Feel free to take sides, but don’t take issue with a topic most of us will inevitably face now or in the not-so-distant future.
Introducing “Mobile Web Design,” a
four three-part series of how-to’s and savvy conversation,
arriving at your newsreader, browser, or possibly even your mobile device over the next few weeks.
Here’s the schedule, replete with mobile colloquy:
- Part One: State of the Mobile Web
The Mobile Web – folly or fellow? I summoned the assistance of Jason Fried, Josh Williams, Patrick McGalliard (Sprint) and others to get an inside look at where we’re at and where it’s all headed.
- Part Two: Methods to the Madness
Not sure how best to mobilize an existing or planned website? Stick around for part two and discover four ways to add a little sanity to the madness.
- Part Three: Tips & Techniques
How do we designers and code slingers cope with the current state? What slings and what doesn’t? Tune in for tips and techniques, including screen grabs from a variety of devices.
We’ll recap much of the information presented at WebVisions 2005, but we’ll also introduce plenty of unmentioned resources. So fire up your microbrowser and hang on for the ride.
