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.
