Mobile Web Apps

Building rich interactive web sites... dare I say web apps - is a reality with the smart phone browsers shipping with all the latest JavaScript and CSS technologies.

This day long workshop will be a mix of introducing the latest technology & tricks on the mobile device and hands on practical exercises where you'll get to play with what you're learning.

Although this workshop will have an iOS focus, a lot of the technology we will look at applies to most new WebKit based devices (Android, Playbook, etc) and smartphones running Opera Mobile.

"Remy's HTML5 for mobile workshop showed me how to do at least three things I'd previously thought were impossible."

- James O'Brien
