Mobile web app development presents challenges for adapting content to a variable screen size and a unreliable internet connection. This 4 day instructor-led course extends the web developer’s awareness and knowledge to the current issues and solutions of Mobile First, Responsive Design and mobile frameworks available for managing a mobile presence. A framework presented to solve small screen and low bandwidth problems is the popular jQuery Mobile framework coded without native programming in Java or Objective-C. This allows teams to use the skills they currently have to deliver a mobile site with a maximum amount of reused code. The biggest benefit of using a free mobile library like this is in having the testing already completed for making the features cross-browser compatible.
