28 Days of Dojo

Today I am starting the “28 Days of Dojo” blogging marathon. So far I am the only participant but I welcome any and all to chime in or give me ideas. I am by far not a Dojo expert so, this month should be fun, I hope to learn a lot. I will be posting one blog entry related to Dojo every day in this month, starting with today, let’s see if I can do it.

So let’s get going, according to Merriam-Webster:

Dojo a school for training in various arts of self-defense (as judo or karate) link.

Unfortunately, that is not the Dojo I will be writing about. This is. If you are new to Dojo or have never heard of it you might want to start by reading the Dojo Foundation site. Dojo is backed by some of the biggest players in the software industry including IBM, Google, Sun (not so large any more), and Aptana. I have used Dojo on a few projects and most notably the Attachment Viewer on OpenNTF. I have also done a lot of jQuery on this blog and a couple of other sites so I have an appreciation for at least two of the best JavaScript frameworks out there. Dojo 2.0 has a lot of promises and it looks like it’s going to be an excellent upgrade.

The rest of these posts should be fairly technical and I might often compare approaches to jQuery.

  1. Bob,

    Look forward to your blogs on Dojo. I use Dojo for all the Web applications for both Domino and non- Domino environment. I will be interested in your jQuery comparison.
