Mobile: Don't Break the Web

A session at CodeKen 2012

Tuesday 6th November, 2012

10:30am to 11:30am (GMT)

Mobile browser performance is challenged by bandwidth, battery, and memory constraints. Slow loading and reacting sites create bad user experiences. Sites that drain batteries or crash the browser are infuriating. Porting a web application designed and developed for desktop devices—devices with virtually unlimited memory, and literally unlimited power (they’re plugged in, not running on battery) in many cases just doesn’t work. By understanding mobile limitations and keeping mobile in mind throughout the development process you can create more responsive, faster downloading, less battery consuming applications.

In this session we assume you understand general web performance optimization, and instead focus on best practices required to improve performance on mobile devices. Instead of just covering how best to get a site onto a device, you will learn how to make sure it works optimally once it is there. Topics include HTML5, CSS3, images, JavaScript and the DOM.

We’ll cover mobile device limitations that often lead to poor user experiences as well as tips and techniques to prevent these trouble spots from arising.
