Top Customer Reviews
My colleagues and I have been using Dojo in anger for about 8 months now, so perhaps this text should be viewed as a more advanced text.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
two-thirds of the work, so I'm very grateful for it. But it takes some getting
used to, and the on-line documentation is, well, succinct.
Russell's book came along just in time. It's a lifesaver.
The Introduction alone is worth the price. I found out about
some invaluable Web development debugging tools that I'd never seen before.
notions: Closures, Context, and Anonymous Functions. And all of this before
we even get to the toolkit!
The book makes the Dojo easy to use and easy to understand. There's a wealth
of coding examples, as well as complete lists of objects, methods, and so forth.
This book is certainly worthy of the fine O'Reilly imprint. The fact that it is edited by the always discerning Simon St. Laurent is definitely a plus. If you are a web developer who needs cross-browser support, you need this book in your library.
If you are working with Dojo this book will make your life a whole lot easier.
One thing you should know before buying this book. It does not have in depth coverage of anything in the Dojox package, so you will not find anything in this book on the Data Grid!
Take a few days and give it a read, then keep it on your desk for reference. You can't go wrong.
Part 2 explores the rest of the toolkit, including complete coverage of Dijit, the rich layer of drop-in replacements for customized HTML controls. Dijit is designed so that it can be used in the markup with little to no programming required, and makes it possible to build attractive web pages that already look and behave much like user interface controls from desktop applications.
