On Wednesday 23rd of March I will hold a Mobile Web Workshop in Amsterdam. The workshop will take place in Felix Meritis (Keizersgracht 324), and it will run from 10:00 to about 17:00. Tickets are €300 ex. VAT, and they include lunch. The maximum number of participants is 15.
I will give an introduction to the mobile browser landscape, the touch events, the two viewports, and other mobile-specific web development topics. This will take me roughly two of the seven hours. A third hour will be occupied by lunch and informal discussion, and the rest is for you to fill in.
I’m not a big believer in workshops where the teacher talks for eight hours straight. Therefore the idea is that you take a genuine project you have to work on for a genuine client, or, failing that, an experiment you’re working on. We’ll discuss these practical examples, you’ll work on them during the workshop, and we’ll solve practical problems together.
I will take plenty of test phones, including a few obscure ones such as the Nokia N900 (Maemo) and the HTC Smart (Brew MP), that we can try stuff on. If you have them you should also take a few phones — and not only iPhones or Androids. (I do not own a Windows Phone 7 device, so if someone could bring it we’d all be grateful.)
Oh, and if you’re interested in the mobile web, take a look at the Mobilism conference, 12th and 13th of May, in the same venue.
