The team at LinkedIn has published video from my Mobile First! talk at the LinkedIn Tech Talk series, where I made the case for designing Web applications for mobile platforms before the desktop in order to take advantage of explosive growth, useful constraints, and innovative capabilities. I also outlined tips for designing with: multiple screen sizes and densities, touch gestures, location awareness, orientation changes, tight audio/video integration, and more.
More often than not, the mobile experience for a web application or site is designed and built after the PC version is complete. Learn the three reasons web applications should be designed for mobile first instead: mobile is exploding; mobile forces you to focus; and mobile extends your capabilities.
Thanks to the entire LinkedIn team for having me out!
