Responsive Design, Mobile Admin, Front-end Performance: Updates on the Mobile Initiative
By 2015, there will be more mobile device users then desktop users. That’s squarely in the middle of Drupal 8’s life cycle. If we want Drupal to remain relevant as a web-based CMS, we must implement significant mobile-friendly features.
We already have Web Services (read: APIs needed for mobile apps) and HTML5 initiatives to work on those parts of the mobile experience. The Mobile Initiative already works closely with those initiatives, but additionally it is focused on the following issues:
- Ensuring all our themes use a mobile-first, responsive design
- Building a responsive layout engine with the SCOTCH initiative
- Front-end performance improvements, including a responsive image solution
- Mobile-accessible administrative interface
In this session, we'll discuss what's left to do and how you can help. We'll be having a code sprint to work on the Mobile Initiative issues on the final day of Drupalcon. (And possibly one beforehand, too!)
