New Book: ExtJS 3.0 Cookbook

ExtJS 3.0 CookbookA few days ago I was contacted by Packt Publishing. As an active member of the ExtJS community, I have been asked to review a new book called ExtJs 3.0 Cookbook by Jorge Ramon.

I’m very excited to read this book, and I’ll be posting my review within a few weeks. The book is intended for: “Ext JS users who want a book of useful techniques, with explanations, that they can refer to and adapt to their purposes. Developers who are already familiar with Ext JS will find practical guidance and numerous examples covering most of the library’s features and components that can be used as a solid foundation to build upon when creating rich internet applications.”

According to the Packt Publishing site, the book covers the following topics:

  • Mastering ExtJS widgets
  • Creating custom components
  • Building forms with custom validation
  • Exploring Layouts
  • Drag-and-Drop
  • Use patterns and state management

My copy of the book is in the mail and should be arriving shortly, but you can order a copy for yourself by clicking on the book cover above. Happy reading!
