Mobile web and mobile application strategies workshop is targeted at web designers and developers wanting to deploy mobile applications to maximise mindshare and improve customer reach.
Today, the mobile device is fast becoming the de-facto way to access the Internet. Thus, for many businesses, their customers may already be using mobile devices to access their site. However, inspite of its promise, the mobile ecosystem remains fragmented. The challenge for any business is to view the customer relationship holistically. This means, the business has to interact with the customer no matter what device/ platform they use and still provide the best experience for that environment.
In this workshop, we explore the strategies to achieve this goal.
In the first wave of mobile applications, iPhone and Android applications dominated the ecosystem. However, today it is no longer enough to simply have a Mobile Applications strategy because the ecosystem has now evolved to include the Mobile Web.
Targeted towards web developers, web designers but also professionals already using Mobile devices, the workshop will provide practical insights on strategies which can be adopted to profit from Mobile Web and Mobile apps.
Approaching the discussion from the perspective of web technologies, the workshop covers cross platform strategies (combined mobile web and app strategies) including reach, monetization, advertising and development
- The Mobile Ecosystem
- Principles of mobile design.
- Mobile Technologies and platforms(web technologies, native app technologies and Cross platform development environments)
- Deploying a community based mobile application on iPhone, Android, iPad, Nokia S60 devices, RIM and WebOS for an illustrative community app
