After hearing about mobile design at web conferences for the past several years, it might be easy to think that if you haven’t made your own site mobile-friendly yet, you must be way behind the curve.
Well think again. During the course of writing about mobile web design, I got curious about how many web conferences have taken their own advice to heart and have designed sites for mobile presentation. A quick non-scientific check of one dozen prominent web conferences yielded a surprising result: 50%.
Conferences with responsive designs or mobile sites include:
Conferences without responsive designs or mobile sites include:
- An Event Apart
- Future of Web Design
- SXSW Interactive
- User Interface 16
- Web 2.0 Summit (they do make a few navigation accommodations)
I look forward to tracking this over time, and to also include additional examples to make this quick inquiry more comprehensive. Feel free to contribute conference sites to this list via a comment. Thanks!
