If you want to create mobile applications, working with HTML5 is inevitable. With Flash no longer universally supported among mobile devices, and HTML coding not powerful enough to provide an engaging experience, it's no longer a question of "if" or even "when" you'll do HTML5 coding, but "how." DreamWeaver has integrated jQuery Mobile so effectively that it speaks to all users from novice to more advanced.

Session participants will review the basics of jQuery Mobile and how it addresses these issues. With jQuery Mobile and DreamWeaver, developers can easily create mobile-like interfaces with simple button clicks and very little HTML tweaking. jQuery Mobile also gives you the same experience across multiple devices, so you can create training that is consistent across many devices. You will discuss PhoneGap and how to turn your HTML5 content into native mobile applications, and you'll learn to create mobile tables, forms, gesture events, and more with minimal development effort.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create Touch-optimized layouts and UI widgets
  • Ways to create buttons, drop downs, toolbars, tab bars, and more
  • How to structure your mobile material into native-feeling mobile applications
  • Methods to test and deploy as a native mobile application

Technology discussed in this session: HTML, jQuery Mobile, DreamWeaver CS5.5, CSS, and PhoneGap.

Audience: Intermediate-to-advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers who have some experience with HTML, CSS and DreamWeaver.
