So your company has decided to take its documentation mobile. Great!
But just saying “go mobile” is too vague. Is it an app? Responsively designed online help? A mobilized web site? Something else? What effect might going mobile have on your documentation efforts? That’s the subject of this presentation.

We’ll first look at various definitions of “mobile” including apps, responsive design, mobilized web sites, and more – their pros and cons, and tools you can use to create them. We’ll then look at how you might have to change your documentation practices in order to move to mobile, such as requiring greater syntactical rigor, eliminating local formatting, using relative fonts and media queries to create resizable tables and content, and more.

You’ll leave this presentation with a solid understanding of options for going mobile and how your work may have to change to stay on the cutting edge of technical communication.
