jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

Though I have reviewed many software and hardware tools in the past this will be my first book review:

jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

jQuery 2.0 Development Cookbook

First I must say really liked the examples that are used throughout the book. They are well documented and intended with an easy to follow style for learning jQuery.

The first few chapters provide a great introduction to jQuery. Concepts such as traversing the Document Object Model and handling basic DOM events such as click and hover are expertly explained. The later chapters of the book cover sections on jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile and making jQuery Plugins by extending the platform.

Chapter 8 is a great guide to on extending jQuery to create plugins. One of which I have started on my own site as a jQuery plugin toolkit for small effects.

For my job I use a lot of dialog overlays and progress bars that utilize jQuery UI and found the sections describing this (Ch 9) to be very useful.

All in all I have to say this is one the best books I have read for jQuery development and recommend this to new users and those who may have come from other JavaScript libraries (YUI, Sencha, Dojo, Prototype) to ramp up their jQuery skills.

Journey to the Amazon, Store not Jungle (Part 2: Amazon App Store)

Today I’d like to talk about the Amazon App Store for Android.

Though the Amazon’s App Store may not have as many Android apps as Google’s own Market, its selection of apps is very good and well tested( no malware ) Another advantage I see of having Amazons App Store is the ability to load it on other non Google certified hardware such as tablets from Vizio, Velocity Micro etc….

Of course the best bonus is the FREE app of the day which is prominently displayed at the top of the App Store, which encourages users to come back daily to see what free apps they can pick up, as well as see discounts on other popular programs.

I still patiently wait for my Amazon Kindle Fire to arrive next month. Leave some comments.

Amazon.com Inc.’s Kindle Fire tablet ranked as the top ‘Most Wished For’ product at the retailer this week amid strong demand for the tablet. Source

Will the Kindle Fire suceed when its released next month. I belive so.

On my next post I will delve further into the Amazon Ecosystem with Amazon MP3 and Amazon’s Cloud Player.
