Professional Cairngorm: Errata?

So I was browsing around the Cairngorm site this morning and while I was there I happened to look at the RSS feed and saw something entitled “Quoted in “Professional Cairngorm” “. Turns out one of the authors I quoted in my chapter on criticisms of Cairngorm found the quotation in a Google book search. It also turns out that I may not have fully conveyed the intent of the author’s criticisms. As such, I wanted to post a link to the authors post so that you can look at it directly and allow the author to correct anything I may have mis-represented.

Update:
Heard back from the author at the cited post. The issue was not that I misquoted the author in the passages that I cited, but rather I did not convey the full scope of the author’s criticisms of Cairngorm. The passages I quoted focused on criticisms of Singletons (which are one of the major criticism levelled at Cairngorm), but the author has also made criticisms of Cairngorm that go beyond its use of Singletons. You can read the author’s thoughts on Cairngorm and other topics on this blog http://blog.iconara.net.

Professional Cairngorm

So since you can now find this via a Google search, I am guessing it is OK to release to the general public. Here is the book I wrote on using the Cairngorm Framework with Flex.

Learning JQuery 1.3 Book

I have spent quite few trips to the book store scouring the shelves for a book on JQuery (yes I know I could order one online, but for me part of the whole experience is picking the book up and leafing through it). As it turns out, the other day I was contacted about reviewing one. At this point, I have only had time to look through it briefly, but from what I can see there is some good stuff in this one.

The title of the book is Learning JQuery 1.3 and here are some of the things that impressed me so far. Firstly, the Forward of the book is written by John Resig the Creator of jQuery and he gives very high praise to the authors. Secondly it includes sections on creating such things as an image carousel and a headline rotator, so we are not talking about a book on just the mechanics of JQuery, you actually get to see practical applications of JQuery.

You can find a sample chapter of the book here and more details on the publisher’s site here.

I have placed links to this book on the Development Resources and Book Recommendations as well.
