Mention on Patrice Neff’s blog

The past few days I created a mobile site for Memonic. During this I made use of some of the newly found knowledge from the past Webtuesday which Adrian Kosmaczewski was kind enough to share.

Webtuesday: Mobile App Frameworks

I had great fun yesterday at Liip‘s offices, during the monthly Webtuesday meeting.

Then, on Wednesday, I’ll be giving the 5-hour iPhone training I’ve blogged before, and which has been so far an unprecedented [...]
