Responsive Design for provisioning web contents to mobile device users(legacy)Min YaoTraditionally, IT organizations have been using device specific apps to deliver Web content, e.g., iPhone apps, Android apps. However, as the number of mobile devices are rapidly increasing, instead of developing mobile device specific applications, employing responsive design offers a more cost-efficient solution. With responsive design, one set of back engine and program code can configure the Web content and deliver it to multiple types of mobile devices. It would be great if we could share each other’s experience in using the responsive design. EUCSD, Cornell, Penn, Boulder40
