Enredate 2013

Last June 14th, the Auditorium and conference hall of Castellon hosted the IV edition of Enrédate organised by the CEEI of Castellon. More than 400 professionals and entrepreneurs took part in this event.

After the opening ceremony, 6 workshops were held dealing with business and innovation topics.

Both audience and speakers attending this event agreed that this kind of conferences is really useful for the networking of companies and entrepreneurs.

Our CTO and Project Manager, Daniel Juan, took part in one of the workshops named “Mobile Apps: your business in your pocket”, sponsored by RESET Spain. Together with Dani there were two other entrepreneurs of mobile app development and mobile marketing, all three answered the questions of the audience under the lead of Alvaro Verdoy, from RESET, who acted as moderator.

Among the public there were University students, advertising professionals, freelance and even unemployed looking for business idea to grow their own company or for any vacancy within the companies attending the event.

 Two main topics were highlighted in the questions of the public attending the workshop:

-       Multiplatform: differences and advantages of native apps, apps developed with phonegap and web responsive.

We have already posted an entry about native apps and HTML5, and about web responsive as well. But we hadn’t mentioned Phonegap yet, and it’s worth mentioning as it is gaining importance within the mobile market.  Many app developing companies are using Phonegap to adapt customers’ projects to any platform they ask for. Phonegap enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3. The resulting applications are hybrid, meaning that they are neither truly native nor purely web-based.

-       Job options and future of the app development companies. Everybody agreed in the answer of this question: the future looks promising.

As smartphone and tablet sales keep on rising, so does the demand for apps adapted to these devices, either native, hybrid or web responsive format.

The future of web pages lies in mobile devices

When customers visit a web page not optimized for mobile devices, up to a 44% of smartphone and table users, according to PuroMarketing, will never return to the webpage, and a 52% may think about returning.

 Having a web adapted to the device you visit it from, could make the difference between the success or failure of the company, as customers may check the web pages of other competitors that are already adapted.

 Mobile devices keep on growing and evolving, so must web design do. Hence the step forward from static web design to Responsive Web Design. The latter, according to Wikipedia, is defined as a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the @media rule.

 Which are the advantages of a responsive web? Among others, a wide reactivity adapting to the screen of any device, offering great ergonomics with the same info design as the old version. The responsive web, if available, will appear directly on your screen, but a classic version would be available if required by the user.

 Web responsive does not need a new url, so no need to worry about redirecting links, and info structure is the same one that appears at the complete web, in order to avoid users getting confused if changing patterns.

Despite all these advantages, there is still a big disadvantage: web loading time. A web responsive makes necessary the download of all the elements when visiting it, resulting in lower performance.
