Ever wonder what makes a mobile Web experience really positive? This course shows you how to build mobile Web apps that draw users into your content on their smartphones and tablets.
Here are key skills you're acquire in this class
- HTML5, and especially new elements in HTML5 that enhance mobile design
- CSS3 -- again with a focus on mobile design
- jQuery Mobile. jQuery Mobile is built on jQuery, and allows you to create Web apps that have all the features of native apps which are much more expensive and complicated to create.
The course covers both technique, and design, so that you can build mobile Web apps that are as appealing as they are functional. It consists of six sessions, each with video lectures, detailed notes, and sample code.
Who this course is for:
- This course is for people who want to learn to build mobile Web apps using HTML and CSS, along with jQuery Mobile
- This is not a class for creating native apps with high-level coding languages that work in only one device
- This is not a responsive Web design class, it is a more robust approach to creating an app experience for users
