We are excited to have Aimee Chung of Mobix Creative (mobix.ca) to speak on Designing and Building Mobile-Friendly Websites. Learn about best practices and principles of mobile website development. Understand the market for smartphone/tablet development and which ones to best focus on. Be aware of the different types of external factors that affect the user interface design decisions that you make. Look at different tools for emulating mobile websites, validating, and testing. Get some useful tips for Drupal responsive themes. We’ll also discuss about how best to develop a mobile site, whether standalone or an all-in-one responsive site. Katy will be doing a short demo on Using Adaptive Theme to build a responsive Drupal website.
This session is an introduction to responsive web design and is suitable for graphics designers, web designers and non-techies who want to have a better understanding of mobile-friendly websites. It also applies to all types of websites and CMS's including Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal.
Drupal Showcase/Lightning Talk: We want you to showcase your latest project or share a great development tool with our group. Come prepared to give a short 5 minute talk on any Drupal related topic. If you want to use a laptop to demo a website or admin panel, please be sure you have the necessary cable to connect to the overhead screen. Please contact [masked] to schedule your showcase.
Drupal Q&A: Bring your questions on anything related to Drupal from how to do something technical in PHP to what modules are needed to implement a feature you need.
Cost: While there is no cost for this event, it would be great if you can come prepared to order something (some of us order dinner, some just drinks) along with a 15% gratuity as we really want to keep up a good relationship with ABC as they've been great in allowing us to book their conference room.
