Recap of Mobilism 2013


Last week I attended the 2013 edition of Mobilism which, in short, was pretty awesome. Below is a quick summary of what was presented to help you decide on what’s interesting for you to watch. I’ve also added some of the notes I jotted down.

The common theme running through all talks was that in order to create the beautiful, fast and maintainable webpages of tomorrow we need to embrace content structure and put it at the core of our web dev process.
