Posted in Coding, JS & AJAX, Tutorials2 years ago • Written by 17 Comments

jQuery Mobile version 1.0 finally launched this past November. Don’t know if you heard about it, but if you are planning to do any mobile app or website development, it’s better to get started with it right now.

I’m sure you’ve heard about jQuery. So, its mobile version is pretty close to what you already are used to, but with a lot of enhancements for mobile screen events (like touching instead of click, and there is no hover) and browsers (this one is tricky since there are plenty of browsers and devices out there) and capabilities (pluggable components).

The crazy thing is how simple it is to initiate and build a fully working mobile site. Actually, we’ll be talking about concepts, tips, codes, and in the meantime you can build your own app, in no more than one hour. Yeah, noob to ninja in one hour, this is what you’ll get here :)

So, let’s rock!
