Video: Make Your Mobile Applications Responsive with HTML5 and CSS3


Mobile applications come in numerous form factors these days.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to write an application that can respond to the operating environment so that it always looks its best?  In this video excerpt from Jon Flanders course Building Hybrid Mobile Applications with HTML5 you’ll see how to use the new CSS3 media query to create page that can reformat itself based on screen size and even play audio queues along the way.  In the full course Jon goes on to cover topics such as designing the native application shell, using mobile friendly content, handling touch gestures, and offline scenarios.


Jon is the author of RESTful.NET from O’Reilly, as well as Essential ASP for Addison-Wesley, and was a co-author of Mastering Visual Studio.NET for O’Reilly. Jon’s current major interest is helping people to understand the advantages of REST.
