Announcing my eBook – jQuery Mobile + PhoneGap + Drupal 7

Last year, I worked on a blog post series about building a jQuery Mobile HTML 5 App with PhoneGap and Drupal 7. After getting really deep in the weeds on that project, I ended up with some very complicated JavaScript to manage the creation of Drupal nodes with an authenticated user.

That experience led directly to my creation of the Drupal Plugin for PhoneGap for iOS, which I used to really clean up the JavaScript needed to make a connection to Drupal. I’m really excited about getting Drupal developers into building mobile applications, and I’ll be co-presenting on Drupal and PhoneGap at DrupalCon Denver 2012!

I’m excited to announce that I’ve been rewriting that blog post series into a more thorough, step-by-step guide to building an HTML5/CSS/JavaScript app, and I’m going to make it available as an e-book! I’ve published several traditional programming books with Apress, and while I enjoy working with them, it can take a year or two after a project gets started before a book comes out on the shelves. This time around, I’m going to publish directly as a PDF that you can download.

I’m currently in the writing/revising stage of the project, but would love to hear feedback and line up some reviewers – contact me through this web site if you’re interested! Join the mailing list below, and I’ll keep you up to date with the latest announcements and updates.

I’m very interested in this book and would definately buy it. I bought 4 books on the topics jQuery Mobile, Phonegap and Mobile apps in various combinations just before xmas, some were better than others. I can test code and check grammar.
