Introducing Our New Website: BuildMobile

Kristen Holden

The team at SitePoint have been very busy of late, thinking up wonderful new topics and websites. So it’s with great pleasure that I bring to you our latest creation: BuildMobile.

The recent launches of DesignFestival and RubySource have shown you some great new content and ideas such as the Cicada Principle. Our simple goal with BuildMobile is to bring you innovative ideas, tutorials and opinions from the world of mobile web development.

Over the coming weeks and months, we will be engaging some of the worlds best mobile web developers to ensure that our content is always cutting edge and relevant to your clients and your business.

BuildMobile is split into several distinct sections.

We know that many users are very passionate about their mobile platforms, so each of these categories will focus exclusively on specific platform news, apps, tutorials, reviews and more. New categories will be added over time, so make sure to stay tuned for the latest mobile developments.

We are always on the look-out for great authors. So if you happen to know a great mobile web developer, please let us know.

You can connect with BuildMobile via Facebook, Twitter or by visiting the new site. Stay tuned for more new sites from SitePoint in the near future also!

    Why isn’t there a category for Windows Phone 7 application development?…Yet there is an advertisement on the Website for WP7s. If you included a category for WP7 apps then you’d obviously be covering all bases and the Website would surely be the #1 spot for Mobile Web / App Development.

    Should a dedicated WP7 category be included on the Website, I would find myself on the Website more often than I intend to be on the Website, which probably won’t be a lot of time at all.

    Great design though and I like what you guys and girls at SitePoint are doing with launching subject-specific Websites.

    Kind regards,

    Andrew Cooper

      Very good point, Andrew, and it won’t surprise you to know that a WP7 section is in the works, as are some other categories that will be of interest. Like all our sites, BuildMobile has some growing to do and is going to do it in public. Keep visiting and keep telling us what you want.

      Hi Andrew,

      There is definitely a Windows 7 section in the works. Our editorial team is just waiting for some of the first articles to be produced. We are going for quality over quantity :)

      Stay tuned for the windows section to be launching in the near future along with a bunch of other cool things.

      Cheers,
      Kristen

    Thanks! I have been waiting for this.

    It’d be better if the article titles for these external articles linked directly to the article themselves than having a small intro article on sitepoint.

    I’m liking the focus of this new site though.

    • http://www.onsman.com Ricky Onsman

      It would, Rjs37. We’re working on that. In the meantime, there should always be a direct link within the post excerpt on our home pages, and near the top of the post itself.

      I know there wasn’t a link in this excerpt (until just now). I will let myself off with a warning.

      If it happens again – let us know. Heads will roll. Mine, probably.

    Looks good, following the HTML5 RSS feed now. Blog style sites seems to be so dominant now. Even SitePoint’s ‘Articles’ section in the main navigation just redirects to the blog and the IA seems to be create a specialist blog over an articles section.

      Hi Mike,

      The consumption habits between a blog and an article are very blurred. It is definitely easier to manage with a single system as well.

      Stay tuned for some cool new things from sitepoint and our network. There will be some changes coming in the very near future.

      Cheers,
      Kristen

    The interview with Bruce Cooper was great. More interview and tips that was in the interview are very helpfull for people that are learning that tech. Mobile and tablets have a big future and very interesting learn.

    Nice site, however I would have liked it to launch with a little more content.

    I quickly exhausted all the readings and now that I’m all enthused and will have to find other sources of information.
