Understanding Mobile Application Development – A Teachers guide for Educators

Overview

Since 1996 the membership supported WebProfessionals.org aka World Organization of Webmasters has worked tirelessly to support and advocate on behalf of Web professionals including those that teach Web centric topics. To that end, we met with hundreds of community college and high school educators throughout the U.S. over the summer of 2012. The goal of the conference series was to bring educators up to speed on Mobile Application Development with HTML5, jQuery and JavaScript and to discuss challenges and barriers to teaching Web professional topics.

This is the first in an 8 part series of blog post entitled “Understanding Mobile Application Development – A Teachers guide for Educators” and those that teach Web centric topics.
