From the Front Lines of Multi-Device Web Design

It’s hard enough to design a great mobile or Web site but what about experiences that span these devices and more? Join Luke for a set of lessons learned designing Web products that attempt to embrace simultaneous and sequential multi-device use. What worked and, more importantly, what didn’t?


Mobile Input

Being able to access content on mobile devices is only half the battle. People also need to participate. And since they’re likely to have their mobiles with them all day, there’s plenty of opportunities to capture their input. But how? Mobile devices come with a natural set of constraints that’s traditionally made input hard. But there’s hope. In this half-day workshop Luke Wroblewski, author of the best-selling books, Web Form Design & Mobile First, will outline how to:

  • Focus your efforts on where input matters
  • Take the burden of input off users and onto your designs & code
  • Go beyond Web forms to capture user input

You’ll walk away with best practices and inspiration to optimize your mobile Web sites and applications for input that allows your users to buy, communicate, register, and more.
