One of the challenges with mobile development is giving your applications a modern look and feel that meets users’ expectations. If you’re using WebSmart for mobile web development, you’re most likely already working with jQuery Mobile, which is used in the new mobile templates. It’s also possible to use jQuery Mobile with Presto to give your green screens an even more mobile-optimized UI.
Craig Pelkie and Marcel Sarrasin recently recorded an educational webinar on simplifying mobile web development with jQuery Mobile. jQuery Mobile is a free, touch-optimized web framework that makes it easy to create visually appealing mobile web applications. This webinar is now available for on-demand viewing.
In the first half of the recording, Craig will show you:
How to use jQuery Mobile to create mobile-optimized web apps
Before and after images of web forms that have been enhanced with jQuery Mobile
jQuery Mobile’s easy-to-understand syntax
In the second half, Marcel will show you how IBM i programmers can rapidly deliver IBM i mobile web apps. You’ll see a live demonstration of how to develop new PHP or ILE mobile web apps over DB2 data with WebSmart Mobile, and how to give your existing green screens a mobile-friendly web GUI with Presto.
