    “The Immobile Web” â€" Device Diversity Just Got a Whole Lot Uglier â€" a BDConf Video Presentation from Jason Grigsby (click for full article and video presentation)

    The magnitude of devices for which developers need to consider when programming is astounding... and it's getting worse. "The Immobile Web," a video presented by Jason Grigsby at BDConf Orlando tackles the issue head-on.

    Device diversity is about to get an order of magnitude worse. SmartTVs are hitting the market in mass this year. Sony, LG, Vizio, and Samsung are all shipping televisions with Google TV built in. If the rumors that Apple will release a TV this year are true, 2012 will turn out to be the year web developers start to tackle the glass screens hanging on living room walls. Now add retina displays on iPads, iPhones, and laptops into the mix and it's one big pot full of screen jambalaya.

    Why should web developers learn about the web on TVs? Because TVs represent the next challenge in device proliferation. They share common characteristics with their smaller brethren. They create new challenges and opportunities that haven't been encountered yet. Most importantly, learning how to build for TVs helps expand our knowledge practices of building for mobile devices and high pixel density screens.

    "The Immobile Web," a presentation by Jason Grigsby at the Breaking Development Conference held in April 2012 in Orlando, Fl., takes a closer look at the device and screen fragmentation that is already challenging developers. In this 55-minute presentation Jason shares his research and ideas on how developers should prepare for this device apocalypse.
