Enhancing Mobile Web Applications with Device APIs


With more and more users browsing the web on mobile devices, the web community now largely understands how important it is to design and implement our sites with the assumption that it will be viewed on a small screen.

Responsive web design is only one piece of the puzzle, however. A mobile device is more than just a smaller viewport. The technology available to your average mobile device varies considerably to the average desktop or laptop computer.

In this session, I will show how developers can enhance their web applications to take advantage of hardware features via device APIs, without sacrificing the overall experience for users accessing the application from non-mobile devices.
