  • Pretty Mobile: Making Your Application Look Sexy

    by Jason Mark

    If you ever find yourself making graphical decisions on your application, this session is for you. This hands-on workshop will consist of critiques and walkthroughs of your applications with an eye to making them look amazing. We will open up Photoshop and hack up screens and try new things.

    We will look at best practice applications and give some tips on how to get there. Our goal is to make sure that everyone leaves this workshop with a list of design improvements that you can make to your own applications — and a list of other things to be done as well. We can't make you a designer in one workshop, but we can help you with that next step up.

  • Refactoring for Mobile with CSS3 and HTML5

    by Joseph R. Lewis ☕

    The rate at which customers, partners and employees are accessing our websites via handheld devices has grown explosively in the past few years. How are these users interacting with your Web content? Are you delivering an enjoyable and useful experience? If not, come to this class and learn what to do about it!

    This class explores recent trends in the mobile Web and use live code examples to demonstrate how you can make Web pages more accessible to mobile devices by taking a CSS-based, minimally intrusive approach to page markup.

    Starting with an off-the-shelf content management system theme, we will modify the layout for an optimized small screen, touch-based experience. You will learn practical strategies and methods for refactoring existing websites for mobile devices, leveraging HTML5 and CSS3 components that work well today.
