Progressive Enhancement on the Mobile Web

A session at RailsConf 2012

Monday 23rd April, 2012

2:30pm to 3:15pm (CST)

Progressive Enhancement isn't important on the mobile web because it's all Webkit right? Not so fast. Even among Webkit implementations events, css, and performance vary widely. We'll talk about the darker corners of the mobile web and show how jQuery Mobile can help you build Rails applications that are reliable, accessible, and support more devices.
