Head First Mobile Web

Cloud Four cofounders Lyza and Jason wrote Head First Mobile Web, published in early 2012 by O’Reilly. Using a conversational tone and plenty of easy-to-follow visuals, Head First Mobile Web is neither a reference book, nor a dry textbook — it’s the smart way for desktop web developers to go mobile. HFMW gets your hands dirty with HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and even some backend code right out of the gate.
