Mobile First? Desktop First? Or Should You Think Universal App!
Mobile First? Desktop First? Or Should You Think Universal App! Historically, web developers approached app development from the desktop first, and mobile was a secondary goal. Even concepts like responsive design evolved from the desktop side. Developers began with a desktop app and worked their way down to make a responsive app available for smaller screens. But now with the extraordinary growth of mobile users across the globe, that approach is being reversed. Developers are building mobile first, and then making progressive enhancements so the app is available on desktop. Should you be taking either a mobile or desktop first approach, or thinking about Universal Apps to deliver the right user experiences. This approach maximizes the shareability of code across these experiences. In this presentation, weäó»ll explore case studies that show the benefits of each approach. Speaker: Gautam Agrawal
