Breaking Development: A Minimalist’s Guide to the Mobile Web

Mon 04.16.12 – Here are the slides from my presentation on “A Minimalist’s Guide to the Mobile Web” from Breaking Development Orlando.
Here is the official description of the talk for the BDConf website: “Designing and developing for mobile devices can be overwhelming in the sheer amount of factors to consider. Questions of where get started or how to retool for fast and lovely mobile sites can send one screaming for the supposed safety of Webkit before running and hiding under an iOS rock. But such fear and trembling is unnecessary and we can go forth in confidence with the minimalist’s guide on data sipping as a legitimate lifestyle, serving responsive images, how to strip that code, and do I really need all this Javascript?”
A video the presentation will be available soon on the BDConf Vimeo channel.
If you are a mobile or web design and/or developer who really would love to attend a great one track, intimate conference on the mobile web, Breaking Development Dallas will held in September 2012.

Mobilism 2011: Ms. Jen’s How to put the Mobile in the Mobile Web

Fri 05.13. 11 – Here are the slides from my Mobilism 2011 presentation this morning, I would also like to highlight the conclusion ideas and some of the links:
Moving Forward:
* Form a grassroots set of folk to work up the hybrid server/client side solution for mobile browser and feature detection as proposed in Brian Rieger’s presentation.
*Work with browser makers for a more complete feature profile and to alert of user preferences on data, media, and current context.
*We are all here now, what are we willing to accomplish & organize?
The Mobile Web is young, let’s keep the lines of communication open and work together.
