Dojo: Using the Dojo JavaScript Library to Build Ajax Applications

James Harmon’s “Dojo: Using the Dojo JavaScript Library to Build Ajax Applications” stands out among the crowd as the easiest introduction to the toolkit. While the O’Reilly and Pragmatic books provide serious firepower for application developers, James’ book gives a solid introduction which helps web developers who are new the whole “Ajax” thing jump in and start taking full advantage of the features Dojo has to offer. Large chunks of Dojo have been designed with non-programmers in mind, from the declarative markup syntax to the template system, and James’ book helps really showcase how simple it is to start building rich, compelling UI’s with Dojo.
