Designers and web developers have the ability to create semantic mobile webapps for multiple platforms -including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry- with jQuery Mobile. It's an open source framework optimized for touch devices that will deliver mobile experiences with literally no knowledge of HTML5 or JavaScript. In this webcast, Maximiliano Firtman, author of jQuery Mobile: Up and Running, will go through the basics of jQuery Mobile and will talk about some myths around this framework that most web developers and designers believe today.
