Time to Write a new Book: Enterprise HTML5 and Going Mobile

Yesterday, I was talking to my business partners (and former co-authors) about writing a new book. So far, the working title of the book is “Enterprise HTML5 and Going Mobile”.  The first part is about technologies and techniques used for the desktop Web clients, and the second one is about moving the Web content to mobile devices. No enterprise IT shop will be able to escape the “going mobile” project. In this book we’ll explain different approaches (with and without JavaScript frameworks) to creating desktop and mobile Web sites and applications while developing  various versions of a sample Web site “Save the Children”. Below is the current version of TOC:

  1. So you guys are moving away entirely from Apache Flex? If so, that is a shame. You’ll be missed.

  2. I think it’s will be nice to have sass, compass and css topics. As well as new features that give html5 for mobile and which are implemented something like geolocation

  3. I’d buy that book. Maybe include a chapter on MVC in Ext JS (especially controllers). Thanks!
