Video: Rapid Front End Development using Dojo and Dijit

December 9th, 2010 by Mike Wilcox

In the video, I create a simple application in real-time. I try to keep it fast paced so it stays interesting. The primary focus is on Dojo and widgets that are most widely used in creating web apps. While the app itself that I’m building is a MacGuffin, it’s a pattern that I really believe in and feel is very important. Web apps can be roughed in very quickly, after which details and APIs can be put in place.

You can see the video here.

    Nice job Mike. I would say this is a must watch for beginners to Dojo.

  2. Very awesome! The manual, and other resources I have seen, make understanding this topic a daunting exercise, but you have made it straightforward and very easy. I definitely feel capable of creating my own reusable widgets the next time the need arises. I also appreciate it being presented in a live coding format, as it’s nice to see the common mistakes that are easily made, even by someone of your abilities. Even better, is seeing and hearing your approach to how you resolve them. Invaluable information.

    For others watching the video, around time marker 36:00, and lasting for about :30 seconds, the audio does a weird ‘looping’ thing that does clear up.
