View the slides, the app and background for the talk here: static.skyronic.com/jsfoo/
jQuery Mobile is an open source framework - designed to allow developers build good looking and usable mobile applications quickly for a wide range of target devices.
The application we'll be building will be a Phone Book application - which will demonstrate the following, among others.
- The concepts of "pages" in jQuery mobile.
- How to leverage pushState and jQuery Mobile's loadPage to keep the app interactive, yet make it bookmarkable.
- The concept of "roles".
- Touch friendly forms.
- Dynamically changing UI on jQuery Mobile applications.
I will not be coding live, instead, each step will be a different commit in a git repository. I will be explaining the changes and demo-ing the application at each step.
The application will also be hosted during demo time, so participants can try out each step on their own device.
A basic knowledge of jQuery, and a very basic knowledge of git if they want to follow along on their own laptops.
