Course details

This course introduces the fundamentals of creating mobile websites using the jQuery Mobile framework — a JavaScript library that makes it easy to create websites that render correctly on a variety of mobile devices, including iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android, Blackberry, PalmOS, and others. Students will explore the basic structure of a jQuery Mobile page, how to implement commonly-used page components like headers, footers, toolbars, buttons, lists, dialogs, form controls and multi-column layouts. Additional topics include the jQuery Mobile navigation model, managing transitions between pages, using themes, and responding to touchscreen events like tap and swipe. NOTE: You should own or have access to at least one mobile device (smartphone or tablet) for this course.
