At the Web Camp event in Dubai, Ronald Widha presented a session on creating cutting edge websites for phones, slates. It was a well designed and thought out topic, and very inspirational from a designer viewpoint. You can watch the video and also read more about high adoption of the Windows Phone 7 platform.
Creating Cutting Edge Website for Phone, Slate and Beyond from Ronald Widha on Vimeo.
A summary of the session “The process of creating a website now always start with a question on figuring out the devices you want to support for; PCs, mobile phones and/or slate devices. Each of these devices may have different screen sizes, capabilities etc. For simplicity, designer/developer often chooses to build dedicated websites for each one of the platform which often leads to maintenance nightmare.
This talk showed how to design and develop a dynamic website for the various platforms using Responsive Design techniques. We're starting up the process with WebMatrix and transitioning to Visual Studio 2010 as we progress. We touched on Html5, CSS3, Razor, Entity Framework 4 and C#.”
