HTML5 Mobile Training Course
The Mobile Web is the Web, and the age of TOUCH is upon us!
If you wish to learn how to build sites that function like native apps when on a mobile device, and yet function as fully fledged websites when viewed on desktops, then this is the course for you.
In the past, people would create websites for the desktop then write code to adjust it slightly so it worked on a mobile device. However the time has now come to consider building your apps for the mobile device first and falling back to the desktop version.
This new paradigm of site building is at the core of this course. The first two days (the HTML5 training course) are to get you up to speed with using HTML5, and the last day is focused on mobile development. We will be covering topics such as touch event handling, and responsive design. We also cover jQuery Mobile so you can get up and running with your mobile prototypes very quickly.
HTML5 Mobile is a comprehensive 3 day course, that is suitable for developers of all levels. Day one tends to be more beginner/best practices focused. Day two is where we really get to roll up our sleeves and wield HTML5. By the end of day 3, it is hoped students have mastered the principles of mobile specific HTML5 development.
3 days.HTML5 Mobile is composed of the following:
- HTML5 Essentials Modules (1 day)
- HTML5 Fast Track Modules (1 day)
- HTML5 Mobile Modules (2 days)
