I’ve had many ask me about any workshops for developers who work with Dojo. When I direct them at SitePen, they always respond with, but those are geared towards companies—aren’t there any public workshops? Aside from telling them to read the documentation and getting involved online, I’ve had to reply with a solemn “no”. That has all changed as SitePen has announced that they are going to start an offering of public workshops.
They are going to offer two of them in San Jose for a first round, we’ll see what happens after that. They’re $2500 a pop but it sounds like they will be covering a lot of great content!
Thanks to a reader for reaching out to me and pointing out that the source code is not posted on the Friends of ED site or this site for the book. I sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and mishap. For now, until it is posted on the publisher’s site, I have provided a link below that will allow you to download all the source code zipped up.
Note, there is no source code in Chapter 3 and therefore you will not see a “ch03″ folder in the zip file that you download.
Update: Here is the code for Chapter 6 which contains animationEvents.html - Download .zip
Getting StartED with Dojo is finally available for purchase! About nine months ago I was approached by Apress to author a book on the Dojo toolkit. After a long journey of authoring my first book, the final phase is complete as the book is now officially published and out in the wild. While the actual publish date was December 28th, I’m sure it will be a little while before you start seeing it on the shelves of popular brick and mortar bookstore shelves such as Borders and Barnes & Noble. For now, you can certainly order it on Amazon.
You may also follow @startdojo on Twitter for up to date news and information relating to the Dojo toolkit and community.
I will mostly be using this site for updates to the book such as corrections to the code and copy. In addition, I will be posting tips and resources for learning more about the Dojo toolkit. A lot of work went into the creation of this book and I hope you enjoy it.
