P2. Responsive Design for Mobile and Web Publishing: Art or Science?
Wednesday, November 28, 2:40 - 4:00

The challenge of designing for multiple form factors is not at all new, but it sure is more complicated. It is not just about squeezing or expanding content to fit various screen sizes, resolutions, aspect ratios, and user interfaces. Presenting a portion of the content on a smaller screen means some loss of context and effectiveness - trying to fit too much inhibits understanding. "Responsive Design" has become popular as an approach to solve some of these problems. What subset of problems can you expect Responsive Design to solve, and what are its limitations?

Wednesday, November 28, 4:00 - 5:00

P4. Mobile Publishing Decisions: Apps, HTML5, Hybrid
Thursday, November 28, 8:30 - 9:30

Mobile is becoming the dominant channel, but of course it is actually multiple channels - multiple devices with multiple APIs, form factors, interfaces and capabilities. This means different content design and strategy approaches, but also new development approaches. Do you optimize for each device? Do you build a mobile web application? Do you mix it up with a little bit of both? Do you adopt a mobile development framework? This session will help you understand the pros and cons of different approaches.

Moderator: Luke Barton, Technical Director, Siteworx
