View_Filters::filter_tec_events_default_view( string $default_view, string|null $type )

Get the class name for the default registered view.

The use of the wp_is_mobile function is not about screen width, but about payloads and how "heavy" a page is. All the Views are responsive, what we want to achieve here is serving users a version of the View that is less "heavy" on mobile devices (limited CPU and connection capabilities). This allows users to, as an example, serve the Month View to desktop users and the day view to mobile users.
