About the Book

This is 1st edition that was first published at 2017. I’m now updating the book into 2nd edition with 2018’s latest technology. 2nd Edition will be free update for existing readers. The book is in discounted until I release the 2nd edition.

In this course, we will explore different techniques to create our content in mobile web. We will focus on content strategy for mobile devices. We will try to fit our layout into small screen. We will make the form inputs fit the virtual keyboards in touch devices. We will fetch device data such as raw touches events and device orientation. Finally, we will pack and deploy our web.
