Mobile technology is poised to revolutionize how we gather information. Already today mobile technology can display information and services relevant to the users physical location and activities, creating a whole new world of interaction possibilities. By 2010 half the population of the planet will have access to the internet through a mobile device, making the mobile web an essential part of our lives. Yet the mobile industry has few if any resources to help would-be mobile developers from diving in other than applied experience from within the industry.

This full-day workshop will be one of the most comprehensive and in-depth tutorials on not only designing and developing mobile websites from concept to completion, but also how to integrate mobile technology into desktop websites and web applications. Participants will walk away from this workshop with a firm understanding of the mobile ecosystem, how to develop an integrated mobile web strategy, mobile design and development principles and best practices and most importantly practical techniques and information to start creating mobile websites.

Web designers, web developers, information architects, product managers, usability professionals, content publishers, essentially anyone with a website will benefit from the content covered throughout the day.
