9781305637962: Building Cross-Platform Mobile and Web Apps for Engineers and Scientists: An Active Learning Approach, International Edition

Cross-platform application design provides an excellent starting point for mastering application development in this new book. You can introduce today's most popular technologies, including HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery Mobile, Node.js, JSON, localStorage, sessionStorage, NoSQL using MongoDB, SQL using MySQL, templating using handlebars, and maps. An app-centric view emphasizes subsets of these technologies to guide students in developing non-trivial apps. The apps serve as models for numerous projects from various application domains, while detailed outlines present potential course projects. Apps continue to evolve, but the technologies in this book form the backbone for future cross-platform app development. Students learn to work with all major mobile and web platforms as this book's active learning approach asks students to type code in parallel as the apps are developed. Meaningful exercises further encourage students to change code and evaluate resulting app behavior.

Review:

"The content is current. I have found the organization easy to follow. It is overall reader friendly and I can expect my students to understand the material without major issues. As a technical writing presentation, it is easy to follow. The subject transfers from one chapter to another without major gaps. As an entry level how-to book, it is sufficient to educate the students with mobile app development skills."

"I think the goal of the book is clear that serves as a book on how to build cross-platform mobile and web apps using HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery, node.js and JSON. The concepts and terms are explained very well when they first introduced. For example, in chapter 3, the definition of HTML and various tags are clearly introduced. The writing of the chapters is clear and easy to follow. I think the illustrative material of this book is very good. I really like the idea to teach mobile app development using active learning approach. The cross-platform idea is also unique. I love the book using an active learning approach. It would be an excellent source for those who want to start mobile app development. I would adopt this book if I will open a mobile app development course."
