Building web sites for Mobile users & Product Demos
Continuing the format from last time we will have a talk and a demo in this month’s MoMo.The topic of discussion this time is “Building websites for Mobile users” led by M.T Ragunath of Google India.
Abstract of the topic
There are several different types of mobile phones in use around the world. Phones differ widely in terms of their capabilities such as screen size, supported content types, supported markup, etc. Many of the features such as rich graphics, and complex scripts, that work well on desktop browsers are often unsuitable for mobile handsets.
Designing a web site for mobile users requires site designers to keep things simple, and to follow certain practices so that the sites are accessible to a broad range of mobile devices. Badly designed mobile web sites result in a poor experience for end users.In this discussion some of these issues would be discussed by working through some examples of how to design web pages so that they work better on mobile phones.
