I’ve written a lot about MooTools over the last several years, the mootorial, my own book, not to mention all the posts here and loads of documentation. So you might think that I’d look at another MooTools book on the market as competition but you’d be wrong. I love that there are other people out there who want to help others learn MooTools. Writing tutorials and books is just as valuable to the framework’s growth as writing code. In the last year there have been a lot of new materials on that front now that I think about it. Ryan Florence has dedicated his blog to the topic. Mark Obcena has written a whole series called “Up the Moo Herd” that covers a lot of tips and tricks and best practices. Not to mention all the great work David Walsh continues to do (for instance, his recent post on NetTuts – “Make your MooTools Code Shorter, Faster, and Stronger” - was terrific).
So yeah, another MooTools Book? AWESOME. Read the rest of this entry »
