  • Used Book in Good Condition

The last couple of years have seen big changes in server-side web programming. Now it’s the client’s turn; Dojo is the toolkit to make it happen and Mastering Dojo shows you how. Dojo is a set of client-side JavaScript tools that help you build better web applications. Dojo blurs the line between local, native applications and browser based applications; the browser becomes the user interface platform. “Modern” browsers provide an incomplete, inconvenient, and incompatible programming environme

    Currently the best book on Dojo, August 23, 2008

    This review is from: Mastering Dojo: JavaScript and Ajax Tools for Great Web Experiences (Pragmatic Programmers) (Paperback)
    One line conclusion: Recommended for serious developers using Dojo.

    Comparing this book with the other two Dojo books (one published by O’Reilly and one by Addison-Wesley Professional), I feel the title of this book is justified. The contents of the other two are greatly overlapped with the free online documentation of Dojo […]. If all you wanted is a Dojo book that resembles a print copy of the free on line book, then you can buy the other two. If you are asking for something more, like how Dojo actually works and how to customize Dojo build (a pivotal step to speed up your product) then this is the one you need. You will not find such detailed documentation from either the Dojo documentation or the other two books.

    I take one star out because the contents of the book does not fully cover the functionality of Dojo, which is somewhat understandable as Dojo itself keeps evolving.

    Good coverage of programmatically implementing Dojo functionality, October 13, 2010

    I used the book to help me get over the learning curve of using Dojo to implement a user interface with tabs and layout.

    I needed to be able to create tabs programatically and remove them the same way.

    This book helped me to do that. It also does a good job of helping make sense of the Library.

    I found it useful.

    It is the only Dojo book I have.

    Not enough advanced topics covered, April 30, 2009

    I find that the book contains mostly beginner and intermediate information. Not enough advanced topics or talking about creation the programmatic way. The layout of the book is a bit odd (Drag and Drop is only talked about for a few pages within the context of working with the Tree widget). For more advanced developers looking for more of a reference book, consider looking elsewhere.

    Excellent & easy to follow layout, good resource for beginner CSS/HTML. Sure there are some typos, but if you use common sense when coding you’ll miss them. (HTML/CSS is very consistent syntax)

    Overall, I found the book helpful. As another reviewer noted, there are mistakes and inconsistency in coding. I am not a fan of the pseudo client talk ie: “Phil wants you to add an active link color to his website”.

    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!! So many errors and typos!!, February 12, 2013

    This review is from: New Perspectives on Blended HTML and CSS Fundamentals: Introductory (Paperback)
    This is a required book for my web applications class. And my professor knows that this book was rushed and has many errors in it. He actually has to make his own online tutorials because this book has so many flaws. Some of the book’s tutorials will give you improper codes, so they will just end up not working. That’s very annoying when you spend 10 minutes typing in that code! And you spend another 20 minutes trying to figure out what’s wrong because you think it’s your fault. Sometimes a tutorial will say one thing, and the example below will say another. The authors of this book were not able to meet the deadline, so they rushed it. It should be ILLEGAL for this book to be sold. And this is the THIRD edition! I can only imagine how horrible the first 2 editions of this book are…
