Enterprise Web Development
Building HTML5 Applications: From Desktop to Mobile
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: July 2014
Pages: 644

If you want to build your organization’s next web application with HTML5, this practical book will help you sort through the various frameworks, libraries, and development options that populate this stack. You’ll learn several of these approaches hands-on by writing multiple versions of a sample web app throughout the book, so you can determine the right strategy for your enterprise.

What’s the best way to reach both mobile and desktop users? How about modularization, security, and test-driven development? With lots of working code samples, this book will help web application developers and software architects navigate the growing number of HTML5 and JavaScript choices available. The book’s sample apps are available at http://savesickchild.org.

  • Mock up the book’s working app with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS
  • Rebuild the sample app, first with jQuery and then Ext JS
  • Work with different build tools, code generators, and package managers
  • Build a modularized version of the app with RequireJS
  • Apply test-driven development with the Jasmine framework
  • Use WebSocket to build an online auction for the app
  • Adapt the app for both PCs and mobile with responsive web design
  • Create mobile versions with jQuery Mobile, Sencha Touch, and PhoneGap

      Shoddy editing, or none at all

          Comments about oreilly Enterprise Web Development:

          Is this a pre-release? I noticed at least 10 errors in just the first page of the intro. It doesn't read as natural English: it has missing or extraneous definite articles, it misuses tenses, and contains inconsistencies in naming the sample application, etc.

          If this is the final published version, I'm sorry to say O'Reilly's standards are slipping. They should clearly mark the books that have not been edited so we can give them a pass until an editor has looked at them. If this is their idea of a finished book, I will steer clear of O'Reilly titles in the future.

          Note: I read this book on Safari Books Online, July 22nd, 2014.

          Comments about oreilly Enterprise Web Development:

          This book has been great to open my eyes to new possibilities. I didn't knew a single thing about web development but this book managed to get me interested and working on it. Only reason I rated it 4 stars was because of some redaction issues that may confuse you.

              i read 150 pages of this book. i am satisfied with what i learn and i am sure in the end i ll not be disappointed as well. Peter, that code that you gave as an example is not wrong. author explains how much is the weight of 2 objects in kb with prototype and without it.

                  I can forgive the strange grammar if English is not the authors' first language.

                  But I cannot forgive incorrect advice
                  Employee.prototype = new Person();
                  emp1 = new Employee();
                  emp2 = new Employee();
                  Both employees will have the same person as their prototype.
                  The book clearly expects each employee to have a different person as their prototype
