There are 3.3 billion mobile devices in the world—that is one for half the world’s population. The number of mobile devices vastly out-numbers the number of computers, televisions, and automobiles. With the release of the iPhone and Google’s Android mobile operating system, adoption of the mobile Web is taking off.
Most web developers are ill-prepared for the transition to mobile devices. Aside from the obvious differences of screen size and location, mobile devices are also connected at lower speeds, have slower processors, and less memory than desktop machines.
During this session, you will get an overview of the factors that make web pages load fast in desktop browsers and how these factors translate onto the mobile Web.
Jason Grigsby is co-founder and web strategist for Cloud Four (http://www.cloudfour.com). Jason has been online since the 5th grade. at one point he could whistle at the exact pitch of a 1200 baud modem so that it would stop squelching when the phone rang. It was either develop this skill or his mother would ungraciously unplug the computer.
Jason built his first web page in 1995. He has spent the last 11 years building web sites professionally before being bitten by the mobile bug prompting him to throw caution to the wind and start a new company focused on mobile and web development. He blogs both at http://cloudfour.com/blog and his personal site http://userfirstweb.com/.
