Item description for Mastering Dojo: JavaScript and Ajax Tools for Great Web Experiences (Pragmatic Programmers) by Rawld Gill, Craig Riecke & Alex Russell...

Provides information and code samples to develop Ajax applications using Dojo.

Publishers Description
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 environment, but Dojo eliminates these problems. While there are many JavaScript libraries available, most focus on just one thing (for example, effects libraries, perceived JavaScript omissions, or HTML widgets). Dojo addresses all of these functional areas-and many others-extensively.

In "Mastering Dojo," you'll get the whole story, from basic usage to advanced idioms. Mastering Dojo starts out with a fast moving tutorial that will give you techniques that you can start using right away. You'll learn all about Dojo Core--the foundation on which all things Dojo stand. See how you can modularize your project for development and automatically package your release for optimal download performance. You'll also learn how Dojo: augments the core JavaScript library fixes the event system simplifies DOM programming provides a complete class definition facility includes a powerful remote scripting (XHR) framework ... and much more.

You'll love using Dojo's HTML user interface control widget system, Dijit. See how to use over 40 widgets, including the rich yet easy-to-use tree and grid controls.

Finally, you'll get an in-depth look at how to design and build a single-page, rich Internet Application.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mastering Dojo: JavaScript and Ajax Tools for Great Web Experiences (Pragmatic Programmers)?

A very good advanced Dojo book  Sep 3, 2008
To fully utilize this book, I suggest you read the Book of Dojo first. Then, for some few topics you still don't get, you need to read the blog of the authors. Compared to Using the Dojo JavaScript Library, I think this is more advanced.
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.
