With recent developments to the mobile web, more and more developers are venturing into the mobile application space by utilising existing knowledge in a different environment. There are many frameworks and libraries available to assist you in this but jQuery Mobile has also evolved to support the growing trend of mobile web development.
Whilst jQuery is quite easy to pick up for the seasoned developer, it’s often beneficial to assist your personal development with appropriate literature. With a mobile web app planned for 2014, I decided to read jQuery Mobile Web Development Essentials to get up to speed and fill in any gaps.
At 230 pages, it’s not too heavy to digest â€“ I managed to read it during a week’s worth of commuting on my iPhone without having to jump on a computer.
Personally, I don’t like to create different applications based on device but, when you do have to focus on a particular context with limited scope, it’s worth looking into jQuery Mobile and this book is the perfect primer to accompany your learning.
