Things to think about when developing a mobile application



I was recently in Raleigh, North Carolina at the NCDevCon Conference. I was presenting things to think about when developing a mobile application. Sometimes, it seems that in the rush to get an application built and out the door, designers and developers forget that a mobile device is not the same as a desktop device.

In this session, I cover everything from Platform choices and development options to physical differences between desktop and mobile computing. I also discuss the mobile user experience and how mobile devices are used differently than desktops.

Fortunately, the nice people at NC State are graciously hosting the recording of this session. I invite you to watch the session and maybe pick up a nugget or two.
