Mobile Applications Development Workshop with HTML5 and jQuery

Mobile Application Development with HTML5 and jQuery will be the topic of the workshop presented by Professor Mark DuBois, Director of Education taking place July 9-13, 2012 at Collin College, Preston Ridge Campus, Frisco TX.

Sponsored by the Summer Working Connections this full week workshop focuses on Mobile Application Development and why it is becoming more important to understand, and even put to use. As the open standard for Web applications, HTML5 takes markup to a new level, requiring Web developers and designers to re-examine the way they’ve worked in the past to make their designs more responsive to mutli-screen environments.

This workshop helps to demystify HTML5 and jQuery as well as provide actual insight into how to begin using aspects of the language in Mobile Application Development today. The Summer Working Connections workshop is jointly sponsored by a grant funded by the Dol and National Science Foundation that is underwriting the event for community college faculty.

Sample outcomes include:

• Learn how to customize your web pages so they take advantage of the capabilities of different screen resolutions (ranging from smart phones to tablets, desktops, and TV screens).
• Learn why it is now important to develop for mobile devices first (mobile web) and then expand to other platforms.
• Learn how JavaScript compares to other technologies and languages
• Learn how JavaScript strengths and weaknesses of the main browsers from a developer’s perspective
