Using FullCalendar

About the Book

I believe fullCalendar is the best JavaScript based calendar solution a developer could wish for.  The features are compelling and the documentation is excellent.  If you are reading this I guess you also agree. ;)

This book follows the same style as my pyFPDF book. I share many code samples and advice that you may find helpful while working with `fullCalendar`. Although the documentation is excellent and Google and StackOverflow are a developer's best friends, I think that by centralizing and organizing our knowledge in one place, a book for example, we can learn better our tools. 

This book will be of help to you as it has already been for me. Trying to teach a subject is one of the best ways to learn it.

When you buy the book all code samples and resources will be available in a ZIP package linked from the "Introduction".
