Prototype and Scriptaculous Book

Today I noticed the book "Prototype and script.aculo.us: You never knew JavaScript could do this!" and while you do not need a book to learn P&S, this book will definitely induce a good 6 months to a year of experience into your skill set.  The book is available on Amazon in print or on the book's website in PDF format.

If you only want to know the basics of P&S, then you'll be fine with looking over the Prototype documentation and script.aculo.us samples.  However, regardless of how deep you want to go, you should definitely check out the freely available source code for the book available on the book's website.

As always, let the tools do the work, but don't rely on them for everything.  It's critically important that you understand AJAX developer from a deep mechanical level before you start using JavaScript or AJAX frameworks.  If you aren't well-versed in JavaScript and AJAX development, then I highly recommend AdvancED DOM Scripting: Dynamic Web Design Techniques by Jeffery Sambell.

Well, OK... there is no comment section. It's not that I don't care what you think, but we all know that one guy in the office who feels the need to peek over the cubicle to contribute unsolicited "help" every time someone says anything about anything and who who feels the need to express himself every time something looks different and gets offended anytime someone expresses discomfort at his constant intrusion and who thinks all his "interesting traits" makes him a "team player". I don't care what HE thinks. He's not welcome here.

Follow me on Twitter instead. Comment there. @netfxharmonics
