  • Refactoring for Mobile with CSS3 and HTML5

    by Joseph R. Lewis ☕

    The rate at which customers, partners and employees are accessing our websites via handheld devices has grown explosively in the past few years. How are these users interacting with your Web content? Are you delivering an enjoyable and useful experience? If not, come to this class and learn what to do about it!

    This class explores recent trends in the mobile Web and use live code examples to demonstrate how you can make Web pages more accessible to mobile devices by taking a CSS-based, minimally intrusive approach to page markup.

    Starting with an off-the-shelf content management system theme, we will modify the layout for an optimized small screen, touch-based experience. You will learn practical strategies and methods for refactoring existing websites for mobile devices, leveraging HTML5 and CSS3 components that work well today.

  • A Mobile Web App for Android in 75 Minutes

    by James Pearce

    Using Web technologies offers an exciting way to create cross-platform mobile applications. This hands-on class will drop straight down into HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, which we will use to create an application from scratch.

    We will be using JavaScript frameworks to create a rich Web-based app for the Android platform. We will use a variety of user interface controls, geolocation, JSON & CORS-based data feeds, a client-side MVC architecture, and then SaaS-based theming to round it all off.

  • Using HTML5 to Target Android and other Devices

    by Wallace B. McClure

    Come to this class to examine the features of the Android WebKit-based browser and jQuery Mobile, and learn how to leverage them to build applications that target Android and other devices.

    Building native applications can be costly and time consuming. How can companies effectively target both of these platforms with the same codebase and save development dollars? The Android and iPhone Web browsers are based on WebKit. We’ll look at the features common to both and how developers and companies can target both of these platforms.

    By taking this class, you’ll learn how to create Web applications that target Android and iPhone. The benefits of this approach are:

    • Easy cross-platform development.
    • No requirement to learn Objective-C/Xcode or Java/Eclipse.
    • Applications are immediately upgradeable. There is no requirement to go through the marketplace and app store of either platform.
    • Web developers are easier to find than Objective-C or Java developers.
