2 The Agenda / Goals… Options
Do I need to provide a ‘custom’ mobile experience? If I do, … What are my options? How do I decide? Tools What tools do I need? How much will it cost? What skill sets do I need? Approaches Do nothing (modern day mobile devices have great browsers) Mobile skin (device specific skin or site) Web App (HTML5, jQuery, Mobile Framework) Native App (iOS, Windows Phone 7, Android, Blackberry …) Steve Fabian Gooddogs.com DotNetNuke Project Trustee and Core Team Member Microsoft MVP Asp.net May 10, 2011

3 The Agenda / Goals… Options First .. Why are you doing this?
What are you trying to provide? Passive access to data? What data? Images? Video? Just text? Interactive features / data conversation? A ‘better’ mobile experience? An ‘optimal’ mobile experience? Before you can evaluate your options, you need to understand what it is you are trying to provide for your mobile users Steve Fabian Gooddogs.com DotNetNuke Project Trustee and Core Team Member Microsoft MVP Asp.net May 10, 2011

4 The Agenda / Goals… Tools What platforms do you want/need to support?
iOS Android Windows Phone 7 Blackberry others? Each one requires a different toolset for native development Can you afford to pick one? Does the technology exists to pick many? write once, run anywhere Will Web Apps be ‘enough’? This is NOT going to be easy Steve Fabian Gooddogs.com DotNetNuke Project Trustee and Core Team Member Microsoft MVP Asp.net May 10, 2011
