Add "Mobile" to the list of projects you can deliver on.


Closed captioning is available.

This course is designed to turn web designers and developers into mobile designers and developers. We'll show you how to use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to make slick web apps that feel right at home on a mobile device. We'll take you through the whole process, from design, through to implementation and front-end development.

We'll also talk about PhoneGap, which is a project that will allow you to turn your HTML masterpiece into real app that you can sell on real app stores.

This course is based on the SitePoint book: Build Mobile Websites and Apps for Smart Devices. The book is a useful companion to this course, but not required. (It's still nice to have, coz books are cool too.)

So if you're a web developer or designer, and you want to make the leap to mobile, then what are you waiting for?

What you'll learn

  • How to build a simple mobile app, step-by-step
  • Turn HTML into an app you can sell
  • Learn about Geolocation, gestures, device rotation and other mobile features

Who should do this

If you've been wanting to make the leap to making mobile websites, or if you've been wanting to make mobile apps, without having to learn a bunch of hard compiled languages, then this is the course for you.

In this course, we assume you already know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It would also be a good idea to be familiar with JQuery.

Bonus points if you feel comfortable on the command line.

To make iPhone apps you will need a Mac. If you're just making apps for Android, any operating system that can run Java will be fine.

    Informative, but instructor went far too fast through each topic.
