Learning Ext JS 3.2 From PACKT Is Another Winner!

The same authors who write the original Learning Ext JS are back and definitely with a winner here.  Just to start out, the book is about a third longer, has a new contributing author (Nigel White, aka “Animal” on the ExtJS Forums) and definitely packs a lot more content.  You get the feeling these guys took the feedback they got on the first book and went to town.

To start with, they have lots and lots of examples covering a lot more areas. There is a lot more architectural discussions that really help in building high end ExtJS applications. Chapter 13 for example is completely devoted to code reuse (extending ExtJS).  New features such as Ext.Direct are discussed extensively as well as the new graphics library (but don’t take that too seriously because it is being replaced with a non-flash version in ExtJS 4.0 which is coming out soon).

Overall, I give this book a solid A.  I’m even fortunate enough to get mine signed by Shea Frederick, one of the authors (see picture below).

    Rackspace I mean Rackspace.com the managed dedicated hosting service, not RackspaceCloud.com the cloud hosting. I’ve been talking a lot lately about Rackspace Cloud so I thought I’d make it clear.

    Hey brilliant, this has been a awesome help to me, I have had some really serious annoyances in my personal life recently and it is funny how little things can really pick you back up or make you lose focus on the rubbish stuff and get working on the other things in life. Anyway thank you a lot.

  3. That’s book is one of the most awesome tutorial books I have ever referred in my life. When I needed to take the Ext JS 3.2 for some issue related with my promotion I actually thought about attending some certification course or even online training for the same. Just then one of my friends who is a real maestro in the subject suggested this book to me and I bought it. It was worth the entire penny I spent on it. For those who need to study Ext JS 3.2 I personally suggest this one.
