  • I've found that following the videos listed at http://developer.appcelerator.com/training (which you can even download) are helping a lot to get a good, basic and (later on) more in-depth understanding of the Titanium framework.

  • Hi,

    I've just ordered the following book published by PACKT. Not sure how good it will be but the reviews are are promising. Will let you know how I find it when it arrives.

    Appcelerator Titanium Smartphone App Development Cookbook


  • Just scanning through the boo on Safari Bookshelf and I don't think the cookbook covers commonJS techniques, I think its worth learning this approach if your new to Ti. The cookbook does however provide a lot of other features worth learning.

  • I found the Appcelerator Titanium Smartphone App Development Cookbook helpful while learning this platform. There are two things I love about this book - that quite frankly - I wish more books would do:

    1. The accelerated pace: Alot of books spend the first 100 pages or so showing you how to install or configure your environment, how to program, etc…. Not this one. You litterally hit the ground running, which leads to my second point.

    2. Real World Examples: I am a big fan of the examples used in each of the chapters. Each example/recipe is has real-world uses that you can take, modify & integrate into your apps.

    Also…..I ordered the PDF version directly from PACKT. I got the book immediately and saved about $20 USD.
