In Detail

jQuery Mobile is a touch-optimized web framework (also known as a JavaScript library or a mobile framework) currently being developed by the jQuery project team. The development focuses on creating a framework compatible with a wide variety of smartphones and tablet computers made necessary by the growing but heterogeneous tablet and smartphone market. The jQuery Mobile framework is compatible with other mobile app frameworks and platforms such as PhoneGap, Worklight, and more.

Creating Mobile Apps with jQuery Mobile reflects the author’s years of experience and exposes every hidden secret which will ease your mobile app development. With just a smattering of design and user experience thrown in, going through this book will allow you to confidently say, “yes, I can do that.”.

We’ll start out with effective mobile prototyping and then move directly to the core of what every one of your mobile sites will need. Then, we’ll move on to the fancy stuff.

After creating some basic business templates and a universal JavaScript, we will move into the more interesting side of mobile development but we always try to keep an eye on progressive enhancement. jQuery Mobile is all about reaching everyone. So is this book.

About the Author:

Shane Gliser

Shane Gliser graduated from Washburn University in 2001 specializing in Java development. Over the next several years, he developed a love of web development and taught himself HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Having shifted his focus again, Shane’s primary passions are around user experience and the mobile web.

Shane began working with jQuery Mobile while it was still in Alpha 2 and deployed the American Century Investments’ mobile site while the framework was still in Beta 2. Since then, he rebranded and re-launched his own personal business, Roughly Brilliant Digital Studios (http://roughlybrilliant.com), as a place where he could start blogging tips about using jQuery Mobile.
