Book Review: Sencha Touch 2 Mobile Javascript Framework by John Earl Clark and Bryan P Johnson


I got a chance to review this eBook Sencha Touch 2 Mobile Javascript Framework  by John Earl Clark and Bryan P. Johnson. This book is published by Packt Publishers.

I am really impressed after reading initial chapters and this book starts explaining about Sencha Touch Frameworks, its various components and configurations, how to attach event listeners (initialize, tap, itemtap etc) to those components, data management using models and stores and finally explains about consuming data from Flickr API. Also this book covers advanced topics on Sencha Touch 2 Framework.
