As we all know, the world of technology is increasingly moving to mobile devices (e.g. smart phones, tablets) and wireless computing. At Hamilton, 99% of student have laptop computers, over 70% have smartphones and while a small percentage have tablet devices (15%) that number will likely continue to increase in the future as these devices become more capable as replacements for laptop computers or electronic textbooks become a viable option.
In 2011, Hamilton made its website mobile-friendly, automatically recognizing when a mobile device, such as an iPhone, was accessing it and presenting information in a more mobile-friendly fashion. This approach allows all future web development to be accessible through mobile devices regardless of how mobile technologies change.
