A System to Support Publishing, Editing, and Creating Web Content for Various Devices

Conference paper


One of the main goals of the Internet is to disseminate information, which grows fast and the need to maintain it up-to-date is fundamental. The advent of mobile devices and the growth of resources for these devices, as a way to access the Internet, are re-directing software companies to design multi-device user interfaces to disseminate information. There is a challenge in this situation: how to update information on the Internet in an easy and fast manner, and also that can be accessed through various devices? This research consists in developing a system to support the publication and edition of content for the web, which includes a flow of activities that makes it possible to create this content to various devices
