W3C Mobile Web training courses: learn from the experts!

5 06 2012

Within the W3DeW3DevCampus logovCampus program, W3C is proposing two training courses related to the development of mobile Web sites and applications: “Mobile Web 1” covers the basics of designing and coding techniques of mobile Web pages, and allows students to put into practice all the best practices they learnt about. Additionally, the “Mobile Web 2” course is dedicated to programming mobile Web applications and, here again, students are asked to develop Web apps for mobile devices using the exciting technologies that form the basic building blocks for today’s Web applications, such as HTML5, CSS3, APIs, etc.

This month, we are pleased to open two courses for registration. One is in English, the other will be delivered in Spanish.
