Slides & Code Examples for IASA Talk (April 15)

I had a great time speaking at the NYC Chapter of IASA on April 15 about UI Frameworks and Patterns. If you did not get a chance to attend I am giving a similar talk at the next Philly.Net Code Camp on May 17. Check out the Philly.Net Code Camp site for more details.

Here are the Slide and Code from the UI Framework and Patterns presentation.

Hi Todd,

Thank you for this past weekend’s presentation on using jquery mobile for mobile development. We currently distribute a mobile app for android and iphones/ipad using jscript an appcelerator. I was intrigued to learn about jquery mobile and the possibility of adapting our solution to this technology. One major todo is to release a windows phone version of our application.

My question is about getting access to device features such as the camera and a phone’s contact list from jquery mobile application. I understand from your presentation the use of phonegap as a bridge component between these native device features and the jquery mobile jscript of the application is an option. I am not entirely familiar with the deployment and usage of phonegap. Our current application for android and iphone uses appcelerator to emit native phone applications. Then the native application is submitted to their respective stores for delivery to our users. Is this the same sequence for phonegap?

On of the more intriguing concepts, was to avoid getting wrapped with apple store, google play, or microsoft’s store with distribution of the application. Ideally not having to deal with a native installed footprint on the phone and simply having using navigate to an html5 web app using jquery mobile would be great. But our app does require camera and contact access.  Do you know of any web based only installed solution that we could consider for our mobile application?

Thank you again for the presentation and your time.
