When developing in the mobile space, we are no longer restricted by older versions of Internet Explorer and their lack of support for even the most basic features of CSS. However, the mobile space does provide us with new constraints. Mobile does not just mean tiny devices. We now have to consider the constraints of limited memory, limited bandwidth, limited battery power and increased latency. In addition, we have the issue of varying, limited screen sizes and varied resolutions. CSS can help us with all of these.
In this workshop we'll learn which features to avoid (and why), and deep dive into newer features that should be staples of your mobile web development tool box. You'll learn which CSS3 features to use and which ones to avoid, with more in-depth coverage of the features that are a must in the mobile space. Of course we'll cover features that you know you need to know, like using media queries for different screen sizes, resolutions and browser capabilities, but we'll also cover issues that you may never have considered, such as tricks for bandwidth and memory management, features (and pitfalls to avoid) to ensure smooth animations, and CSS basics like selectors, gradients, transforms and animations that should be in every developers bag of tricks.
