Packaging web content and functionality into a gadget enables it to be seen anywhere from iGoogle to the iPhone-wherever the user may be, on or off the traditional web. Everyone can access your content without having to visit your web site.
Learn the key concepts for successfully syndicating web content via gadgets.
Build platform-agnostic gadgets that run on all the major web portals.
Deploy your gadgets to web-enabled handheld devices.
What you'll learn
You'll learn how to design a successful web gadget, build it efficiently, and deploy it painlessly to a dozen platforms from a single code base. In the process, your web content will gain far greater exposure than is possible with a traditional web site alone.
