About the Book
I'm considering working on updating my book introducing how to build single page applications with Marionette (see here). This book would cover building a basic application using v3 of the Marionette framework.
It's still too early to list exactly what the book will contain, but the end application will be close to the one built in the previous book (althought the code will be entirely different, leveraging the power of ES6). You can check out the previous applciation here. Readers of the previous book were very happy (check out the feedback) with what was covered: enough to become independent with the framework, without being overwhelming... A brief explanation covering the new build tooling will also be included.
I've decided to put this page up (with minimal info at this point), so interested readers can sign up and show their interest: writing a book is a ton of work, so I'd rather not commit to it unless there's real interest :-) So if you'd like to see this book become a reality, sign up with the form above and to the right. And I write books, not spam: your email is safe with me, should you decide to share it. Otherwise, no problem: you'll still be notified when the book goes live!
Check back here from time to time: I'll try and update as the fog clears and I have a better idea of what this book will be.
Here's some of what will be covered:
- using a modern development environment with Webpack to
- bundle and minify our assets
- generate source maps so we can debug properly
- automatic linting, assets compilation, and browser refresh when code changes are saved
- using ES6/7 syntax to simplify our code
- understanding how modules work
- making components that work together and are easy to maintain
- getting to know Marionette features, and how to apply them effectively
- how to "think" in Marionette when building an app
About the Author
I spend most of my time applying technologies to business problems and like many, I acquire new technology skills in a self-taught manner. What I really enjoy is understanding subjects well enough to be able to teach others about them in a straightforward "this makes complete sense" style.
