Format: Paperback
This book walks you through creating Web Apps for mobile devices from top to bottom. The author uses the latest hot technologies for the example apps: functional JavaScript, HMTL5 and jQuery Mobile on the client, MongoDB and Node.js on the Server and Amazon's Web Services to run server side code and deliver static content.
The first chapters introduce the basics of good and mobile Javascript and HTML5 including Touch Events, Canvas and Maps API. Afterwards the author walks through setting up Amazon's Web Services to deliver these static JS and HTML files to the mobile devices. In the same manner Richard Rodger dives into server-side programming with Node.js and persistence with MongoDB.
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.

I'm spending a lot of time sorting through the book's code examples. nginx is not installing correctly and ended up using MAMP to get the the exercise files working. There were good explanations provided for each exercise examples in the beginning. Then the code examples got longer and the explanations got shorter. Making it hard to follow. Spending much time than anticipated dealing with why some of the code is not entirely working. Not finished with the book, but will try to rate it again if I ever finish it within the time I have planned.

I believe that this book is quiet good for newbies and also the topics are vast in range. I also remember that I was a bit confused working with AWS however this book walks you through a very step-by-step guide and everything turns good in your mind.
