Mobile learning resources

I'm thrilled to announce that all HTML tables in Drupal 8 will be responsive. This is a huge win for the Drupal 8 Mobile Initiative.. This is especially important in Drupal's admin section, which traditionally featured wide tables listing recently created content, comments, users, terms, etc. I believe we struck a great balance by hiding unimportant columns by default at narrow widths, and letting user expose those columns on demand.

“My team is passionate about doing what’s best for the consumer, and the web is becoming more and more the center of patient interactions. We recognized the challenge of making site content relevant to all our visitors no matter where in the network they might be. We’ve embraced Web Experience Management (WEM) principles out of necessity to ensure the best user experience for our patients.”

“The Drupal framework is very flexible and allows us to easily implement our WEM strategies.”

    In this white paper you will learn how Drupal is used to develop mobile applications for the enterprise. Between mobile web apps and native mobile apps, Drupal is already a capable platform for assembling mobile experiences.

    Acquia is going mobile in 2012. Therefore we’re using a “mobile first” mantra when approaching our designs. What is “mobile first design”? It is a philosophy of design that centers on the theory that trying to squeeze a desktop experience into a smaller screen size is counterproductive to providing a good mobile experience. Instead, you design an optimal mobile experience before you consider the desktop. In this scenario, the desktop experience that is built on top of a mobile first design can be enhanced to use additional screen space and features as they become available.

    This resource guide directs you toward best practices for ensuring that your Drupal content looks just as good no matter where it ends up.Since there are two distinct areas of mobile development, each substantially different on the back-end, this guide distinguishes between mobile web sites and native apps.
