I’ve got an inkling that jQuery and .Net MVC together can produce some very powerful mobile web experiences. So I’m setting up a Greenfield project at SwappedBooks.com. The intent of the project is to build a site capable of running across multiple mobile devices and delivering a true e-commerce experience to users.
Here, I’ll be walking through the entire process for those developers interested in the “How” of what I’m doing.
First up a brief summary of the technologies I’ve employed:
- .Net 4.0
- Microsoft MVC 3.0
- jQuery 1.8.2
- jQuery Mobile 1.1.1
Everything is Hosted with GoDaddy.com running on IIS with a SQL Server back end. I’m developing in Visual Studio 2010.
