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.

  • Fecha de comienzo: 18 Junio 2012
