Speaking @ Refresh
I'll be speaking to the Refresh Dallas group about the Mobile Web this Thursday (10/11) at IMC2. Over the past year I've been lucky enough to be involved with a couple different mobile projects, and in the process have learned a great deal about the mobile space. I've had to evangelize XHTML-MP, figure out how to test on mobile devices, and give overviews of mobile technology to an assortment of internal teams. So I figured it was time to share the wealth. My goal with this presentation is to help other designers and developers move to the small screen, and create a great mobile experience.
Here is the "official" description:
Jeremy Johnson presents: The Mobile Web
Ready to move to the small screen? How does designing and developing for mobile differ from a traditional desktop experience? How do you architect an experience that is contextually sensitive to both time and location? We'll discuss these questions and more while demonstrating how you can create a great mobile experience.
Jeremy will also give a behind-the-scenes look at a recently developed WAP 2.0 site, and a preview of a new iPhone application.
Buzz words included: XHTML-MP, WAP 2.0, iPhone, Ajax, SMS, Widgets, Mobile Research, and more! ;-)
Also, I've heard the IMC2 offices are pretty cool, so I'm looking forward to checking them out - here is the address:
12404 Park Central, Suite 400, Dallas, Texas 75251 Google Map Link It will be in the Sun Room, on the 4th floor, on the North side.
I hope you can attend, I'll be ready to answer your questions and hopefully spark some discussion about mobile devices.
