Never mind the Mobile Web; Here’s the Device Web
Any web site can be accessed with any sort of device, including laptops, smartphones, tablets, glasses, smart TVs. Obviously, your site must be responsive. But how you get to be responsive? Having separate web sites is a sure failure; you need a single web site that can offer different views. But what’s the ideal way of switching views? Is Responsive Web Design just enough? How does it really work? What are its hidden costs?
In the talk, Dino debunks some of the myths of Responsive Web Design and brings up the need of really different HTML views. The rest of the talk is built around a demo ASP.NET MVC application that uses a popular framework (WURFL, used by Google and Facebook to name a few) to switch views intelligently based on device detection.
