    AngularJS to Opera Mini: You're just not worth it!

  • Google-backed AngularJS is a popular web application framework providing a client-side MVC architecture. It has been criticised in the past for its performance, particularly on mobile. As observed by Peter-Paul Koch, it's odd that Google was pushing a mobile-challenged framework back in 2012 when it must have been obvious that Android was going to be pretty important to it as a company. Perhaps those who knew weren't those who were pushing AngularJS.

    Lightweight accordions & sliders with jQuery Mobile

  • Mobile developers are commonly confronted with clients who want everything – all the content and features – on their PC site crammed into the mobile site, rather than going for a streamlined mobile site. That might sound like a recipe for bloated code and a poor user experience – neither of which is acceptable on a mobile device – but it needn’t be, as long as mobile developers emphasize ingenuity over excess functionality. That’s where jQuery accordion menus and sliders come in very useful and, if used cleverly, they can help keep the mobile experience lean and mean.

    Getting Started with Java ME

  • As the world gets connected, we see the emergence of a wide variety of sophisticated and personalized mobile devices. Although the number-crunching power of the higher-end devices is very respectable, there is still a need to build applications that use minimal resources, and that are portable. Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME), formerly known as J2ME, with Java’s inherent ‘Build once, run everywhere’ concept has been adapted to build resource constraint applications for these myriad devices.

    Mobile Web App Development with ASP.NET and HAWHAW

  • Development of mobile applications is often highly dependent on the target platform. If plain old XHTML markup is written from scratch then it is rather easy to switch between platform and technologies. But if the development process has been accelerated and made comfortable by the use of tools and middleware, it soon becomes difficult or impossible to switch environments e.g. from a LAMP environment to ASP.NET or vice versa.

    Are Widgets ready for me?

  • OK, so getting back to the widget reality here. I'd like to take a look at what the platforms are, what your options are and if it's really even worth it to go there. I know that last time I got a bit distracted with the whole 'sprite' thing, but I promise to stay on track here.
