Come hear! Two senior usability engineers from Vanguard discuss mobile components, such as data tables, tabsets, and navigation. We will also cover bigger ideas like mobile first and progressive reduction, backed by data from usability tests. You will learn when to use certain mobile components and when they don’t work. You will not learn anything about how to code what we talk about, but hopefully you will start to think about coding for mobile from a users point of view.
