Mobile-First Design: How and Why Mobile Design Comes First

Mobile-First Design: How and Why Mobile Design Comes First

A complementary look at my WordCamp Tampa 2015 “Mobile-First Development: Why and How” talk, we’ll look at the design aspects of what mobile-first is and what it entails. We’ll look at examples of great designs and some pitfalls to avoid, as well as my pet peeves as a mobile consumer of content.

How many of us use services like Pocket to get a nice view of the content because the site owner didn’t account for mobile or did a poor job of it?
