The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them.

Makes JavaScript less painful

jQuery Mobile

Makes mobile development less painful

Why use jQuery Mobile?

  • Community-developed, but with corporate backing
  • Open source (dual licenced MIT or GPL v2)
  • Free in beer (gratis) and as freedom (libre)
  • Use what you already know for Web development (or should know) — HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

Why you may want to skip on jQuery Mobile

  • Mobile Web browsers are horrible
  • No single point of distribution/easy monetization
  • JavaScript is awful
