Designing Mobile Web Experiences

A session at An Event Apart Seattle 2012

Wednesday 4th April, 2012

9:00am to 4:00pm (PST)

Each day, device manufacturers ship more than a million touch-screen phones enabling new ways for people to interact with the web. But when they get to your website or application, what kind of experience will people with these devices have? Will they be delighted by your mobile Web experience or frustrated?

In this full-day session on web design best practices for mobile devices, Luke will detail how to think about and design for web organization, actions, inputs, and layout on mobile. Through lots of examples, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use “content first/navigate second” organizational structures optimized for small screens and mobile use cases
  • Design for increasingly prevalent touch interactions with appropriate targets and gestures
  • Construct forms and input fields to make input on mobile easier and more pervasive
  • Manage layouts across multiple devices with ruthless editing, device experiences, and responsive/flexible designs
  • And more!

Armed with these design best practices and principles, you can make sure people have a great mobile web experience whenever they visit your site.

This full-day session follows An Event Apart Seattle and runs 9:00am - 4:00pm on Wednesday, April 4. You can register online now, but don’t wait: there are limited seats available. https://store.aneventapart.com/r...
