TECH SET interview: Jason Clark

By Patrick Hogan |

Jason Clark refers to his book Building Mobile Library Applications as “recipe-driven” with a goal of “empowering readers to build stuff .” Implementation is Jason’s focus. He writes our Code Words column, which debuted in May with Using Google Spreadsheets Data API to build a Recommended Reading List.

In the this interview, Jason describes two specific projects.

2:47. A working version of jQuery Mobile, the generic template, suitable for public or academic libraries, is a framework for optimizing your library website for mobile.

3:49. Mobilizing your library catalog using OCLC web services, you will develop an app that will run a search against WorldCat to receive local items, either in your library or nearby.
