In this interactive webcast presented by Jonathan Stark author of Building Android Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, 2nd Edition, and Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript we will discuss mobile app development still being in its infancy and because of this, the tools available for troubleshooting are quite limited. Debugging apps - especially cross- and multi-platform - can be extremely difficult. Fortunately there are a few cutting edge technologies and techniques that can ease the pain while we wait for more mainstream solutions.

What will be covered in this webcast?

  • Webkit developer tools
  • Remote JavaScript console with JS Console
  • Remote DOM inspection with WEINRE
  • Web debugging proxy with Charles
  • Remote hardware access with DeviceAnywhere

Who is this webcast for?

This webcast is for front-end designers and developers who are interested in creating web or hybrid mobile apps. A working familiarity with standard HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is recommended.
