FoA Bits and Pieces
Ryan and I had a rather interesting package waiting for us yesterday – a translated copy of Foundations of Ajax (I think Korean, but we’re not really sure). I dig the new cover and I’ve got to say, it’s pretty cool to see our book in a different language!
Here are a couple of pix:
There’s also a new review on Javalobby. I would like to say that at least a few of the examples run without a Servlet container and given this particular site’s audience, I’m betting people will be just fine. We certainly could have delved into patterns a bit more and I would direct people to Christian Gross’ Ajax Patterns and Best Practices and Michael Mahemoff‘s Ajax Design Patterns (also check out his excellent Ajax Patterns web site).
All in all, a pretty positive review. As I’ve mentioned before, given more time, we would have written some examples in some other server side languages. I was happy to hear that the book has helped the reviewer (Schalk Neethling) and thanks for noticing the tools chapters – lots of people seem to miss those somehow!
