jQuery Mobile in 24 Hours

The book is available now!

I’m happy to announce that Sams Teach Yourself jQuery Mobile in 24 Hours is now available at most book retailers including Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Safari Book, Pearson Higher Ed, and informIT.

The book writing process was a fantastic one that was full of late nights, last minute changes, and lots of testing. While I’ve already thanked quite a few people in the book, I’d like to extend that thanks to everyone who had a suggestion, comment, correction or otherwise.

Those wanting to pick up the book right now can use the following link to purchase the book from Amazon (in both the paperback and/or kindle variety).

As always, please let me know what errors you find (I’ve already found a couple – including a floating “n” in the first ‘about the author’ section), and I’ll have them noted so that future printings of the book don’t have these errors.

Those that are in marketing or are just curious about creating and using QR and Microsoft Tag codes can forgo the morning beverage and instead pick up the mini-book “Creating QR and Tag Codes” for their kindle with the link below:

In another bout of good news, I’m also happy to announce that my second book has just left round one of editing and is moving into production! “jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Mobile: Recipes and Examples” is slated to be released on November 10th.  This is an amazing book of recipes that you can use to get the gist of a particular jQuery function, or an actual snippet of code that you can use in your current projects.

Here is the link to the pre-order page on amazon:

  1. Hi Phil,

    Working on Chapter 3. Not seeing either of the following files in the downloads zip:

    resizing_element.html (Listing 3.12)
    moving_element.html (Listing 3.13)

    Since the book does not show the html code for these two exercises, can you provide? I’m not getting my files to either resize or move and I want to compare my code with yours.

    Hi Gene, I have sent some extra example files for Hour 3 the email account you used to comment. Let me know if you do not receive the code examples and I will try again.

    Thanks for purchasing the book, and for commenting 😀

  3. Hi Phil,

    I am missing those files as well. Could you send them my way.

    • Nvm I found the more complete copy of the sample code files.

      • Happy you found them, I believe I will be doing a post with a direct link to the missing files. Thanks again for commenting and for replying that you had found the files. Let me know if any other example files are missing or mislabeled.
