Trees on Campus

We have been wanting to start a dedicated book section - the DojoCampus book corner - for quite some time. Finally a small start has been made and today we launched the new section with small reviews of the three last books about the Dojo toolkit.

We hope that this section can grow to a lively area where we can feature some of the great books out there, maybe have featured articles by the authors, or interviews to go into depth about the content of those books.

If you have ideas, suggestions, or if you are missing a book, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Now make yourself a cup of tea, sit down and enjoy :)

Dojo - The definitve guide

Dojo: The Definitive Guide really is. As a reference, you can’t beat Matthew Russell’s tome. This book is chock full of insightful commentary, explanatory diagrams, and a thorough overview of Dijit’s inheritance chain. Well written and in depth, this book is a must-have for all users of Dojo 1.x . Though no coverage of DojoX is given, the author outlines some of the more stable highlights, giving you just enough to “know it’s there” and where to go looking. He covers all the ins-and-outs of Dojo Base, Core, and Dijit, providing markup-based and programmatic instantiation examples throughout.
