Full-Day Workshop: The Mobile Web

A session at beyond tellerrand // DÜSSELDORF 2015

Wednesday 13th May, 2015

10:00am to 5:00pm (CET)

Although there is no mobile web distinct from the desktop web, there are several unique features that make the web on mobile devices different than on desktop. This workshops discusses these features and how to deal with them.

----- During the workshop -----

PPK will talk about browsers, viewports, and touch events. He can easily talk for 12 hours straight if no one stops him, but that is not necessarily the very best way of teaching and learning. Instead, we should apply the theory to a practical project. So let's get our hands dirty and actually work on real problems.

If YOU have a real problem or an unusual situation, or a misunderstood detail of the mobile world, we will have an excellent example that will teach you more than yet another bit of theory. Besides, maybe other participants already had the same problem and solved it. Ideally you send your questions beforehand so we’ll be able to integrate them into the workshop.

This workshop will cover:

  • The large number of browsers, particularly on Android
  • The viewport
  • Touch events
  • Making your websites future-friendly

----- Required equipment and knowledge -----

Please bring devices. The more obscure, the better. Devices are cool! A laptop or tablet to make notes and work on little tests is useful. You should have tested a site on mobile phones at least once. You don’t need to be a pro, though.
