“Mobile UX Patterns… and selling things” by Fabio Bertone

Responsive design and server side techniques have improved a lot the mobile web experience.

“What’s a capability URL and why should you care?” by Daniel Appelquist

Jeni Tennison from the W3C TAG has been working on documenting the best practices for Capability URLs: http://w3ctag.github.io/capability-urls/ Capability URLs are an often-used technique for web applications, even if they’re not often called this. I’ll cover the main points of Jeni’s document and hopefully spur some discussion on this topic.
