Responsive Design vs. Separate Mobile Sites: Presidential Smackdown Edition

The US presidential race is heading into full swing, and the candidates will soon be intensely debating the country's hot-button issues. The web design world is entrenched in its own debate about how to address the mobile web: should you create a separate mobile site or create a responsive experience instead?

It just so happens that the two US presidential candidates have chosen different mobile web strategies for their official websites. In the red corner is Republican candidate Mitt Romney's dedicated mobile site, while in the blue corner is incumbent president Barack Obama's responsive website. Which will prevail? Sit back, crack open a cold one, and watch the battle unfold as Brad Frost, a mobile web strategist and front-end designer at R/GA, dissects the candidates' sites to uncover best practices and common mobile web pitfalls.

About the Presenter: Brad Frost is based out of Steeltown, U.S.A. – Pittsburgh, PA. He is the creator of Mobile Web Best Practices, a resource site aimed at helping people create great mobile and responsive web experiences. He runs a responsive web design newsletter and also curates WTF Mobile Web, a site that teaches by example what not to do when working with the mobile web. He is passionate about mobile and is constantly tweeting and writing about it.

About the Conference: Breaking Development focuses on new, emerging techniques for web development and design for devices beyond the desktop – mobile phones, tablets, and even televisions.
