Richard Dias from Packt Publishing dropped me a note recently asking if I was interested in taking a look at their latest jQuery title: jQuery Mobile First Look. The timing is perfect since we just had a team meeting to discuss how we wanted to continue evolving MotorsportReg.com for mobile consumption. About 10% of our usage is on mobile devices and while our HTML/CSS system today is pretty solid on iOS and Android devices, we want to improve the experience. We already use jQuery extensively on MSR so jQuery Mobile is a leading candidate before we even crack the book. I’m hoping HTML5 matures quickly so we can leverage the skills and technologies we’re already using rather than go down the path of platform-specific applications. Once I dig in I’ll post a short review of the book.
