No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event
Prereq: web design/development experience

Everything you know about browser compatibility is wrong! At least,
if you want mobile users of your site to have a good experience.
Using Javascript frameworks and serving the same page to everyone is
great for building compatible websites for desktops, but with mobile
download speeds recapitulating the days of dial-up modems, the extra
overhead becomes significant. Learn about the challenges and quirks
of mobile devices and how to give your users a full-featured
experience without locking out those with less-capable phones. We'll
cover basic techniques, limitations of popular devices, testing, and
taking advantage of advanced features. Bring your favorite smartphone
or other mobile device if you have one.
