Screencast: “Mobile Web Development Techniques”

On June 17, I did a workshop about mobile web development and Opera's developer tools at the Mobile 2.0 conference in Barcelona. During the talk, I introduced three different strategies to tackle the mobile challenge:

  1. Do nothing (or at least not too much)
  2. Create a separate mobile site (using the viewport meta tag)
  3. Create one site that works everywhere (using a smart combo of media queries and the viewport meta tag

As I want to share the points made during the workshop to a wider audience, I have remade my presentation into an 18 minute screencast on mobile web development techniques :-)

You can find the presentation on Vimeo, or watch a WebM version in Opera 10.60 or another WebM capable browser.
