By the end of 2012, it is expected that more than 80% of the world’s population will have access to a smartphone. Your library users will assume that your library can be accessible from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. Now is the time to be ready! During this webinar, you will:

• learn what a mobile framework is.
• acquire best practices in mobile Web development.
• understand how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript work together to build mobile Web apps.
• recognize the differences between native and web apps.
• gain hands-on experience writing a mobile Web app using jQuery Mobile.
• have an opportunity to continue to work with Chad after the webinar to demonstrate what you learned.
• have access before and after the webinar to a free Web server so you can see your mobile Web app live.
