1.0 out of 5 stars Authors need to test code too!!! 4 Sep 2009
By Casey Kemp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is disturbing and disheartening when running code, downloaded from the publisher's site, only to discover it doesn't work which is the case with The Concise Guide to Dojo. Using dojo-release-1.3.2, I was never able to get any of the code working; I'll try another text but recommend purchasers stay away from this one.
