I am proud to announce we recently posted the dotMobi Mobile Web Developer's Guide on mobiForge.

This is quite a comprehensive guide to mobile web development. It layers on the advice from the W3C's Mobile Web Initiative Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0 document, but takes it further. We feel that it is very important to take the base of these best practices and make it more accessible. With this in mind, our developer guide starts by describing the mobile landscape in detail, and the importance of the mobile context.

There are code samples and a lot of useful information. We then go on to describe actual techniques for putting together a mobile-friendly site and how to publish it. This guide is designed for developers who are already familiar with web development in general, but now want to try their hand at mobile. For now, the guide does not cover more advanced techniques such as adaptation, but this will come with Part II

Lots of great information. There is a typo on page 51 under "MIME TYPES":
"Problem: The MIME types sent my HTTP servers"...the "my" should be "by".

The "DotMobi Mobile Web Developer's Guide" is a very concise piece of work.

I have made a huge reference to it in MobilePublisher's Impressum (imprint) ! The first MoZine_3.0 MobilePublisher ( will be available soon (German language).
