El curso ayudará a diseñadores Web y productores de contenido del mundo de las PC’s de escritorio a familiarizarse con la Web entregada a dispositivos móviles. Es fácil ver porqué la Web y móvil van de la mano a mano. A diferencia de la de la tradicional web “alámbrica”, la Web móvil va a donde van los usuarios. Los usuarios ya no tienen que recordar hacer algo en la Web al regresar a su equipo de escritorio, pueden hacerlo inmediatamente, dentro del contexto que les hizo usar la Web en primera lugar. Los dispositivos móviles permiten la Web llegar a una audiencia muchos mas amplia, en todo momento, en todas situaciones. Tiene la oportunidad de llegar a lugares donde los cables no pueden ir, a lugares anteriormente impensables (por ejemplo, proporcionar información médica en situaciones de rescate de montaña) y acompañar a alguien tan fácil como llevar el tiempo en un reloj de pulsera.

At this year’s 21th International World Wide Web Conference – WWW2012, W3C organizes a W3C tutorial track over two days, on Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 April 2012.

Half-day tutorials from leading experts will be available to researchers and developers seeking to pick up new skills on the latest developments on W3C Web standards.

One of these W3C tutorials will be about “Developing Mobile Web Applications” and will be taught by Dominique Hazaël-Massieux (W3C Mobile Web Activity Lead) and Frances de Waal (W3DevCampus trainer for the Mobile Web and Application Best Practices online training course). The tutorial informations are summarized below:

  • on Tuesday April 17th – morning
  • at the Lyon Convention Centre, Lyon, France
  • Abstract: Participants to the tutorial will learn how to build applications for mobile devices using Web technologies. We will first focus on what makes it different to use the Web on mobile devices compared to computers: the specific constraints of these devices, as well as their increasing specific advantages. The tutorial will then look at how to exploit all the specificities of the mobile user experience, via JavaScript APIs, touch interactions, camera integration, etc.
  • Please register to this tutorial before 13 February to get an early bird rate!

After a very successful first run of the June 2011 mobile Web course, we are pleased to announce that registration is now open for a second edition of the “W3C Introduction to Mobile Web and Application Best Practices”.

The online course can be taken in any time zone and will last 8 weeks, from 5 September to 28 October 2011.

Since it first ran in 2008, the course has attracted over 700 students and with each update, with each new module, with each new advance, the course attracts more and more attention. We were sorry to have to close registration early for the June 2011 run due to excessive demand.

This course helps Web designers and content producers who are already familiar with the desktop world to become familiar with the Web as delivered on mobile devices. It is based entirely on W3C standards, particularly the Mobile Web Best Practices and Mobile Web Application Best Practices. Developed and taught by the MobiWebApp team, the course builds on the output of the various expert groups operating within W3C: the standards, the tools and the experience — all designed to help you make great content available to as wide an audience as possible.

Participants do notably:

  • learn about and use the recommended versions of HTML and CSS to use for mobile today;
  • understand the constraints of working on mobile and how to overcome them to deliver the best possible experience to the widest range of users;
  • practice client side and server side content adaptation techniques;
  • learn about and use the exciting new APIs available on modern mobile platforms.

On successful completion, the participants will receive a W3C Certificate of Completion.

To ensure your place on the course, please enroll now! The full price of the course is €195 but we have a strictly limited number of places available at the early bird rate of €145.
