If you don’t already know, my book has finally been published! You can purchase the book from Packt Publishing, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. The book is titled HTML5 iPhone Web Application Development and its purpose is to help you build iOS specific applications using open web standards.
The book took about 9 months of rigorous work. I am thankful to my wife, Janice Smith, my family, friends, coworkers and to the great individuals at Packt. Without these wonderful people in my life, this wouldn’t have happened. There were many times where I felt I couldn’t continue on, either because of the amount of work from my daily job to personal matters of my own life. But having these great people surrounding me helped me to finish it and get it out to you!
I am extremely proud of the work in the book. My goal was to deliver a book on practical programming practices that includes tons of code samples, images and references. That last important point, references, was critical to me because that was how I learned to teach myself programming. My goal was to give you the ability to learn web application development for iOS, but also teach you where this information can be found, read and ultimately understood with practical examples.
The task was not easy. As you advance in your career you become well versed in the paradigms you become familiar with. It is then difficult to break it down in simple terms to help beginner to junior level developers. But I do believe that we struck a balance in the book between beginner and advanced level material.
Enough talk though, go out and get it! I promise you’ll learn a few things and possibly like the writing itself
