Revamping Your Web Pages for Mobile Without CSS3 Media Queries

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Choosing a mobile oriented web framework can be challenging. However, many mobile applications don't require advanced functions that only the proprietary language of the device can deliver, so HTML5 is a good choice, especially if you already have something that runs on a desktop browser (zero footprint client). If you have existing web pages specified in HTML via PHP or another kind of programming, and haven't yet addressed mobile, this session is for you. This session will examine a technique that achieves multi-view flexibility by simply changing a few of the heading area Meta tags and various other HTML5 elements at run time. Obviously you have to be using a programming language or framework that allows changes to the Meta tags etc. at run time based on various conditions. Examples of detail page level HTML that works for the multiple views will be shown. Literal examples of the heading area Meta tags in production and HTML changes that control the views will also be shown. This session won’t get into the exact programming or code required to accomplish the run-time changes but most of it will be covered at the conceptual level. A list of the subroutines we use, showing the structure of the view changing programming, will be handed out on paper.

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain insight to leverage existing code for the purpose of enabling mobile-friendly views
2. Learn about key HTML elements and a relatively flat CSS design
