Episode Notes

In this episode, Zeke and Matt dig into what Mobile First means in 2018 and how that impacts the work designers and developers do today.

When we consider Mobile First on the web, we often start at Responsive Design. There's a lot more to it today. The decisions made here can have a real impact on people's lives.

We'll talk about web-based Mobile First approaches and its impact on both design and development processes. We'll also discuss Progressive Web apps and the problems they solve for your users.

Spoiler alert, this technology has a big impact on your entire project. With new tools also comes more complexity, because of that we have a lot more to consider when design and building applications.

When thinking Mobile First, native applications are also an important option to consider. There are some legitimate reasons to reach for a native application. Designers and developers have more tools at their disposal by being able to leverage native APIs which can lead to a more rich experience. But there are some caveats (shocking, right?).
