In May 2013, The Pew Internet and American Life project reported that 63% of adult cell owners now use their phones to go online. Increasingly, mobile browsing activity is no longer limited to simple "on the go" tasks and interactions. During this course, we will examine what it means to build and design for multiple screens and platforms and how these practices can inform standard web development and design practices. Our emphasis will be on the creation of a working mobile web app, responsive web design principles, and a series of readings to ground our understanding of what it means to design and develop for the mobile setting.
