70 percent of businesses do not have mobile optimized sites
Three Lakes, WI (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
COLE Publishing, Inc., event organizer and founder of the Breaking Development Conference (BDConf) announced today that the Gaylord Texan located in Grapevine, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, will host the Sept. 24-26, 2012, conference focused on design and development for the mobile web.
The Texan was chosen for its unique environment and first-class meeting space that allows conference attendees tremendous network and social opportunities outside the standard conference room. Tim Kadlec, BDConf organizer, praised the Texan for its unique atmosphere, “One of the key elements that our conference has, that we feel others are lacking, is a unique social element. Some of the best ideas and conversations at BDConf occur after 5:00 p.m., when groups of people get together and share real-world experiences. The Texan excels at offering that experience.”
Breaking Development, now in its second year, has seen tremendous growth as the mobile web continues to explode both stateside and abroad. The inaugural event, also held at the Texan, drew social media acclaim in the developer community via Twitter and blog posts. Subsequent events have been held in Nashville, Orlando and Minneapolis.
Topics include design and development details associated with creating visually engaging, user-friendly, performance-minded mobile websites for both businesses and institutions. It is estimated that 70 percent of businesses do not have mobile optimized sites, yet by 2015 nearly seven billion mobile phones will be in use – one phone for every human on earth. Kadlec states it best: “The timing and significance of the Breaking Development Conference is vital to small and large businesses alike, attendance ensures they aren’t left behind in this latest digital revolution.”
Breaking Development regularly attracts some 200 participants from leading companies, agencies and universities such as eBay, Harley Davidson, Disney, R/GA, Stanford and Notre Dame. Attendees are educated, motivated and inspired by speakers who are leaders in the mobile community – notable names like Luke Wroblewski, Ethan Marcotte, Aaron Gustafson, Karen McGrane and others.
Parties interested in attending the Dallas event should do so early, as seating is limited and the event is expected to sell out prior to the Sept. 24 opening day. For more information and to register, visit the conference website at http://www.bdconf.com.
