Presentation slides

Session description

There’s little hotter in the world of web development right now than creating optimized web experiences and applications for mobile web enabled devices like iPhone, Android, iPad and webOS. Luckily, there’s a number of excellent HTML/​​CSS/​​Javascript frameworks to help developers create native-​​​​like experiences for these devices.

In this session, Jonathan Stark takes an in depth look at several of these, including JQTouch, JQuery Mobile and SenchaTouch, comparing and contrasting their approaches, and most appropriate uses. As a developer looking to tailor experiences and applications for the mobile web, this will be an invaluable session.

  1. If you are looking for the right framework for your project try my mobile framework comparison chart which can be found here: http://​www​.markus​-falk​.com/​m​o​b​i​l​e​-​f​r​a​m​e​w​o​r​k​s​-​c​o​m​p​a​r​i​s​o​n​-​c​h​a​rt/

  2. A framework that needs to be added to the landscape is Application Craft. You should look at the Phonegap case study: http://​phonegap​.com/​c​a​s​e​_​s​t​u​d​y​/​p​h​o​n​e​g​a​p​-​a​p​p​l​i​c​a​t​i​o​n​-​c​r​a​f​t​-​p​a​i​n​-​f​r​e​e​-​m​o​b​i​l​e​-​a​p​p​-​d​e​v​e​l​o​p​m​e​nt/

    Suggest you add this to your list. It’s actually a lot more than a framework. It’s a complete IDE with UI and Code editing and incorporates both Phonegap and JQuerymobile. Bit like a cloud based Visual Basic for mobile and desktop apps.
