The Mobile Browser World

In this presentation, Peter-Paul Koch (universally known as ppk) will describe the mobile browser world, its 10 to 15 important browsers, their relations, the difference between normal and proxy browsers, and how to go about deciding on a starting point for your mobile web endeavors. He'll try to make sense of a confusing ecosystem that web developers will need to learn to know better, and he will go way beyond just iPhone and Android.

ppk is a mobile platform strategist, consultant, and trainer in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He concentrates on Web technologies, mobile websites, and W3C Widgets. He specializes in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and browser compatibility. He has won international renown with his browser compatibility research. In 2009 he shifted from traditional desktop browsers and sites to the mobile Web, and he never looked back. ppk discovered that mobile devices and browsers are in even more need of description than their desktop counterparts, and set himself to the task.

This New York State Forum event is being provided in collaboration with the Professional Development Program of Rockefeller College.
