A few weeks ago, I encouraged (dare I say implored?) you to send us your ideas for topics you'd like to see us cover here on developerWorks. I mean, who better to determine which issues are most critical to software developers than those of you in the trenches? Well, this week's feature is proof positive that the system really does work. Our new tutorial, "Improve web application security with jQuery Mobile," arose from a reader comment that appeared on another jQuery tutorial we published back in March. Software security is a perfect example of the type of issue that can have very real consequences for software development, and in this new tutorial, author John Leitch demonstrates why mobile web app developers need to make security a top priority.
And since we already know how much you like jQuery, we've also got a new tutorial that shows you how to create your own CouchApp that performs database operations using Ajax powered by the jQuery framework.
jQuery-powered Ajax -- that has a nice ring to it. Kind of like developer-powered resources. That's what we've got, and we couldn't do it without you. So keep those ideas coming: Post your comments, e-mail us, or fill out our article proposal form. After all, you are our top priority (and yeah, security is a close second).
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
