OSCON 2009 Materials Now Available

As promised this morning, I’ve made all of my materials for the 3 hour tutorial available under liberal licensing. All ~160 slides of them and accompanying code samples.

Also as promised, I removed the PHP dependencies for some of the server stuff and replaced it with a simple python server that uses cherrypy. You should hopefully have no problems getting the sample server to run. You should have no problems finding stuff on the net to help you get that setup if you have problems, but feel free to comment here as well. Additionally be sure to skim the README in there.

You can get the materials here.

Thanks again to everyone who attended. I hope that you were exposed to some of the great tools that Dojo can bring to the user experiences you are creating and that these slides are sufficiently succinct that they are a help to you. While they don’t cover everything in my book, they really do cover a lot of it…more than enough to get you pretty darn proficient.

Finally, remember that we’re having the dojo.beer() tomorrow here in San Jose at 7pm. Please don’t miss it.

Dojo Tips and Tricks

Many months ago, I wrote an article for InsideRIA that provided a topical look at some of the more useful things that Dojo provides you entitled Dojo Tips and Tricks. I’d actually forgotten that I even wrote the article so it was a surprise when a colleague wrote me earlier this morning and mentioned it.

It’s a bit more diverse than some drive-by-tutorials in that it digs into DojoX just a little bit and mentions the build system, so even if you’ve been using some of the core tools for a while now, you may still learn a few things from a quick read.

In between the time when the article was finished and now, Dojo has since updated to version 1.3 so you’ll unfortunately see a few CDN URLs that point to version 1.2; however, upgrading the URLs shouldn’t break anything. The latest and greatest is usually a great place to start, so I always encourage folks to stay up to date.

If you’re coming to OSCON this summer, be sure to drop by my 3 hour tutorial for a closer look at many of the great tools that Dojo provides.
