jQuery Mobile

Mobile devices are on the frontier of technology innovation today. Advancements in hardware and software have transformed cellphones into highly specialized handheld computers, capable of running thousands of applications, performing everything from daily tasks to complex functions. Mobile technologies allow businesses to reach their customers more effectively and enable employees to be more productive. Mobile applications come in many different flavors, from native applications written for a specific mobile OS to web sites optimized for viewing on a mobile device to many different ways of combining both into a hybrid application.

Mobile web applications reach a broader audience than native applications, and as such are a very popular choice for businesses looking to create a mobile presence. There are several JavaScript frameworks that can help speed development and provide a consistent experience across different devices and browsers. jQuery Mobile is a popular choice. jQuery Mobile is a touch-friendly web UI development framework that lets you develop mobile web applications that work across smartphones and tablets. In this session you’ll learn how your web development skills translate to the mobile web and how jQuery Mobile can help you build high quality, rich mobile web experiences. Join Robert for an introduction to this framework.
