How to Build a Mobile Site with Drupal

The trend towards a "mobile first" use of the web is showing
no signs of slowing down
. It's no longer enough to have websites
that are functional on mobile. They must work well and feel
on mobile devices to attract and keep visitors.

How can site builders and developers improve the user experience on
mobile of sites they build in Drupal 7? This session will cover seven
(or even more!) steps to help ensure a consistent and friendly mobile
experience for visitors of your Drupal 7 sites. Some of the topics
I'll cover include:

  • Turning your website into an application - without needing to go
    through an App Store, learn another language, or do anything
    particularly difficult.
  • Improving the performance of your site for mobile (your desktop
    users will thank you too!)
  • Ensuring that your mobile users aren't frustrated by your mobile

This presentation is intended for those with some Drupal experience,
and are familiar with installing Drupal and contributed modules.
Though the topics covered will be targeted at Drupal, most of them
will apply in some manner to just about any website providing mobile
