Presenter for the Following Session
- The Mobile Web: Where to Start.
Mobile web sites: all museum’s seem to want one, but no one seems to agree where to start. By analyzing the development of three very different mobile web projects – from the Rijksmuseum, Baltimore Museum of Art and Walker Art Center – this session will explore the strengths and weaknesses of mobile web development approaches including dedicated mobile sites, responsive web sites and mobile first.
