In this chapter we discussed different ways of developing a mobile application and had an introduction with HTML5 and CSS3. We also got our hands dirty by writing some sample code in HTML5 and CSS3. It is important to understand the power of HTML5 and CSS3 combined, which will provide the most powerful tool for mobile application development for the next generation apps. Then we had a high-level look at Kendo UI architecture and finished off with some of the design guidelines for HTML5 mobile applications.
In the next chapter we will take a deep dive into Kendo UI Mobile, write some code, and develop few screens of an application which will be developed as a fully functional web application as we progress through this book.
