Afterwards the book goes through building several apps of different scale using these technologies. With the examples advances topics e.g. caching, Apps Stores or Multimedia Data are covered.
Each chapter ends with a couple of exercises; the code examples and solutions can be downloaded.
The book makes a great read, the examples work very well and everything is explained in detail. You can follow the introductions step by step and get the code working on your mobile straight away.
I recommend the book to professionals who might not be able to use the latest technologies in production but want to follow the new trends and architectures by example all the way through. It is also a very good read for beginners that want to go into mobile web development and start with good quality code on both client and server right away.
