SXSW 2007 - Brian Fling speaks on Mobile Web

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the SXSW, as it looks like Mobile Web will be more prominently discussed this year. Brian Fling of Blue Flavor gave a presentation at SXSW, and here's his blog page on the subject. He includes a link to his presentation in PDF. I just finished taking a look at it, and he makes some very good points for designers and web developers looking to make a mobile version of their website. Until mobile phone web browsers have reached the same feature set as the desktop web browsers, all the things that Brian covered in the presentation are good to adhere to.

Mobile AJAX from PavingWays

Here's a neat little blog post about Mobile AJAX written by PavingWays Rocco Georgi. He also has a PDF of the slides presentation that he gave in the XML conference 2006 in Boston and during the “Webmontag” in February in Munich. He says he will keep updating that page, and I'm curious to see what other web developers have to say.

My hope is that someday the mobile browser space will be advanced enough that it will rival that of the desktop browser space. That way, web developers can simply write their code once, and that it will render properly on all web browsers - desktop and mobile versions.
