Museums to Go

“Build for now, build fast, build cheap.”

The Museums to Go Working group is an ad hoc consortium of museums aiming to build open-source mobile browser and/or app solutions quickly and efficiently!

Join the conversation on the workings of the project.
Our initial conversation that started this project is on Tate’s Handheld Conference wiki.

See Notes from the Unconference by Mark Gilicinski on Open-source Mobile Solutions at Museums & the Web 2009.

And be sure to check and contribute to the Resources page for code, frameworks, articles, and links to other useful stuff for mobile developers and program managers.
