The last couple of years have seen big changes in server side web programming. Now its the client's turn; Dojo is the toolkit to make it happen and Mastering Dojo shows you how.Dojo is a set of client side javascript tools that help you build better web applications.
Dojo blurs the line between local, native applications and browser based applications; the browser becomes the user interface platform. Modern browsers provide an incomplete, inconvenient, and incompatible programming environment, but Dojo eliminates these problems. While there are many javascript libraries available, most focus on just one thing (for example, effects libraries, perceived javascript omissions, or HTML widgets). Dojo addresses all of these functional areas and many others extensively.

In Mastering Dojo, you'll get the whole story, from basic usage to advanced idioms. Mastering Dojo starts out with a fast moving tutorial that will give you techniques that you can start using right away. You'll learn all about Dojo Core?the foundation on which all things Dojo stand. See how you can modularize your project for development and automatically package your release for optimal download performance.

You'll also learn how Dojo:

augments the core javascript library
fixes the event system
simplifies DOM programming
provides a complete class definition facility
includes a powerful remote scripting (XHR) framework
and much more. Youll love using Dojos HTML user interface control widget system, Dijit. See how to use over 40 widgets, including the rich yet easy to use tree and grid controls.
Finally, you'll get an in depth look at how to design and build a single page, rich Internet Application.
