Smashing Magazine sent me a preview of their upcoming book The Mobile Book, which initially you might think, “Hmmm, that’s a seemingly bold title”. It is. It’s saying, this is the standard, the reference book for Mobile. Well, it is.
The book is honest, it even says it’s an “artefact of it’s time”, which means it admits that one day, we’ll look back and think, gosh can’t believe we used to design/build for mobile as a separate entity. But this is ok. The industry is going through a period with RWD that people seem to be following the latest rule/approach/pattern that is popular on Twitter, but this book takes stock of everything and provides a diplomatic, comprehensive guide to understanding “Mobile”, delivered by (even though I’m not keen on the exact word) current “thought-leaders” and people who have a real passion for the Mobile endeavours in our community.
Buy it when it comes out. Oh and if they ask, tell ‘em Ben Howdle sent you.
I'm available for hire
