What to Bring:

This workshop is dedicated to helping you confirm your web site is good to go on mobile devices before releasing it into the wild.
I’ll share with you nuts-and-bolts approaches that have helped me navigate one of the most difficult things we tackle – ensuring our customers can use our websites in a world of device sizes. I’ll review when to reach for some tools and when to put them away.
In this energetic talk you’ll see demos and illustrative slides serving an audience of technically minded designers and developers as we review practical topics:
* Taking deep dives into browser inspection tools
* Converting Google Analytics big data into knowledge better informing your choices
* Debugging over USB connected handhelds
* Reducing and delaying costs for hardware
* Making your laptop pretend it’s a mobile device
If you’re already mobile first, or simply mobile curious, we’ll choose a set of tools powering-up your workflow and giving you a boost above the competition.
