All The Gory Details You Ever Wanted To Know about Mobile Development
If you are new to the mobile industry or need to dig a bit deeper into the technical side, Brian Fling’s book entitled “Mobile Design and Development” is a fantastic read.
Over the weekend I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Brian Fling at a code camp that I found through a popular website called Seattle Tech Calendar (http://www.seattletechcalendar.com/). In addition to checking out their playfully decorated offices, I also had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of fellow aspiring developers interested in mobile platforms and technology.
Brian and I chatted about mobile fragmentation, frameworks and HTML5 while enjoying some locally brewed organic coffee. I was impressed by Brian’s views at the end of which, Brian handed me his book called “Mobile Design and Development,” written by him and published by O’Reilly.
After reading through the book and seeing chapter headings like “Web Apps Versus Native Applications,” “Adapting to Devices,” and “Developing a mobile Strategy,” I have to say that the book would be a great primer if you are new to the mobile industry or looking to get caught up on the bleeding edge issues affecting mobile developers today. This book gives the reader a comprehensive background on mobile application development and the ability to discuss the difference between native verses web apps and the pros and cons of various mobile frameworks. All in all, the book can get you up to speed very quickly with the current critical issues in the mobile industry while keeping the technical discussions sufficiently high level without overwhelming the reader.
Once you finish the book, you should have a good understanding of what goes into designing a mobile application as well as critical issues that affect the mobile industry at large.
