Zero to Mobile in Three Weeks Flat

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

  • Peter Anglea

Monday 8th October, 2012

4:15pm to 5:00pm (CST)

If you were given just three weeks to completely overhaul your university's website with a new design, could you do it AND create a mobile-friendly version of your entire site at the same time?

This is exactly what the four-person Internet Marketing team at Bob Jones University pulled off in February 2012.

Leveraging the power of CSS grids, the team was able to rapidly prototype and deploy a robust HTML template that not only sped up the creation of individual pages, but was also responsive, cross-browser compatible and delivered a slick mobile-friendly layout for more than 95-percent of our website's content without extensive customization.

This talk is geared towards small departments and “armies of one” who are looking to create a great mobile experience for their entire website without spending inordinate amounts of time and money to get it.

You will learn what a CSS grid is and how it can help you create a responsive/adaptive site layout. We will discuss the various CSS grids that we researched and tell you what we liked, what we didn’t like, and what considerations we took in creating our own.

Creating a mobile site can be a lot easier (and faster) than you think.
