The interest in mobile development, which includes mobile web applications, has never been higher. Some of the developers interested in mobile web approach it from either a desktop or a server-side background. However, many are looking to apply their current web development skills to the mobile web, so they don't want to learn something completely different just to start developing for mobile users. This is part of the reason they are looking to the mobile web instead of native mobile development. In the world of web development, there are many client-side frameworks, but jQuery is arguably the most popular among them. So it stands to reason that there are many web developers interested in mobile who already know jQuery quite well. These developers will be pleased to learn about jQTouch—a web framework based on jQuery and designed for mobile web development. This article will take a look at jQTouch from the perspective of mobile web developers.
