A Mobile Web Framework for the University of California System

APS38 Applications and Standards Track

Hill Country C & D


Most higher ed. institutions don't just have one IT department.  Creating a cohesive mobile presence in this decentralized environment poses a challenge. The University of California system developed and adopted the Mobile Web Framework.  This framework allows each UC campus to build and deploy mobile applications that look and feel the same regardless of the technology used to develop them (Java, .NET, PHP, etc.). This has allowed for broad adoption of the framework and an explosion of mobile web applications in the last year across the UC campuses. This session will focus on how the framework is unique from others out there, how the UC campuses are collaborating on its development, and how other institutions can benefit.
