Here is an example of the mangled text found in the book:
Lunny, Andrew (2011-09-23). PhoneGap Beginner's Guide (p. 66). Packt Publishing. Kindle Edition.
As this is the only book covering PhoneGap that is available now, I do recommend the book. But I wonder why the publisher released this book before it was edited?
4 stars due to the problems with the writing mistakes and lack of editing.
I'm not talking about technically difficult sentences. This book (or at least the first few chapters) is full of read-them-six-times-and-still-don't-understand-them grammatical train-wrecks.
For the record, I make part of my living writing instructional books and material. I do not leave a review like this lightly. I understand the consequences of bad feedback. I also have no doubt that Mr. Lunny is a decent guy. Based on his role at Nitobi, he's probably a thousand times smarter than me. His editor, though, should be fired.
I hate to bring down anyone - but they deserve it.
Just an FYI, some simulators are OS specific, for instance the official iPhone simulator is only available to iOS (Mac) and BlackBerry is specific to Windows. This book shouldn't be docked for this, because the author of this book doesn't control these facts.
programmers abstract their code for maximum reuse, I always feel the more good code you see the more you'll write.
Nice introduction to some less familiar technology used, but very handy to know about.
Client-Side tempting (via Mustache)
localStorage (via LawnChair)
Sleight & NodeJS
Caching & Offline storage with WebSQL
- Offered exposure to many new technologies that I may not have come across, such as LawnChair, Mustache and XUI.
- Covers everything you'll need for a native-like app using PhoneGap, very comprehensive!
- Many practical tips and tricks from this seasoned developer to allow a budding (and more experienced) mobile web developer to fill their toolbox of skills and knowledge.
- Typos - e.g., double quotes are displayed as a character that looks like these: "<<" or ">>", a couple other ones that are obvious, at least to a basic programmer. These weren't show stoppers.
- Many links point to pages that do not exist or have been moved (may just be an issue of the eBook/PDF link)
- Setup using GIT just didn't work because the urls were outdated but thankfully Google can help you around this problem
- unfortunate lack of editing could have easily saved much frustration on this book.
Overall, I really enjoyed all the information covered in the chapters of this book. It really seemed like a brain dump of all the knowledge nuggets that the author had to offer that any good mobile web developer would need to be successful. I admit that the setup chapter was
the most challenging getting past, but there are many places you can Google to help you with the setup . Once that setup is done, everything else in the book applies nicely. The book is worth it for all the useful pieces of information you pick up as you progress through the chapters. Ironically, learning how to create PhoneGap apps is 95% knowing Mobile Web Development and about 5% knowing how to use the PhoneGap tool.
I did tweet about this and @phonegap did respond with plans for an errata site but no news yet.
