A very good advanced Dojo book Sep 3, 2008
Currently the best book on Dojo Aug 24, 2008
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.
The "how" and "why" straight from the horse's mouth Jul 18, 2008
Often when you're learning a new toolkit, you see an implementation detail and wonder, "Why does it work this way?" This book answers a lot of those "why" questions as it shows you the "how" of Dojo.
I liked the way the examples were accompanied by lots of context and analogy to other programming languages. The high level of detail was helpful, too -- the fact that the authors are key Dojo contributors shows in the writing.
