Welcome

- Hi, I'm Joe Marini, and I'd like to welcome you to Mobile Web Design and Development Fundamentals. In this course, I'll show you how to build compelling, easy-to-use websites that are optimized for today's mobile devices. I'll start by identifying the differences between the mobile context and the desktop context, and how those differences should influence web design decisions. I'll talk about coding, and interface design techniques for building websites that work well on today's and tomorrow's mobile web browsers. I'll show you how to use some of the latest features of HTML5 and CSS3, such as geolocation, local storage, and media queries, to build a modern mobile web experience.

Finally, I'll finish with a practical example, taking an existing website and making it work well on mobile devices. I hope you're ready to get started building websites optimized for Windows Phone, Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Opera Mobile, and more, with Mobile Web Design and Development Fundamentals.
