Learning Kendo? This is the book!

OK, it is somewhat questionable for me to recommend a book that I contributed to kendo nuts and boltsand that is published by the company I work for, but I honestly believe that Falafel Software’s new Kendo UI Nuts And Bolts is the book on the topic. 

It has everything I look for in a technical book. It is

  • Expert
  • Comprehensive
  • Cohesive
  • Readable
  • Short

The expertise behind this book is unquestionable; the author and numerous contributors are recognized Kendo UI experts who also provide consulting, training and mentoring in Kendo.

The book is surprisingly comprehensive.  Its coverage of topics such as the DataSource, Templates and MVVM are second to none, and bring out points I’ve not seen covered elsewhere

It tells a story, and the arc of that story is compelling.  You learn Kendo from the ground up; not only the how but the when and the why.  This is greatly enhanced by the readability of the book (it shocks me how many books make it to print without any apparent editing).  And finally, yes, at 161 pages, it is short; short enough to read through.

Note that this $39.95 training guide is presented as a downloadable pdf.

    As good as I’m sure it is, $40 for a downloadable 161-page PDF is about $30 overpriced in today’s market.

    As someone who is actively investing in KendoUI this is a welcome training resource. I have often struggled with the poor lack of documentation around what should be a great toolset.
    Just one question though, is there a sample page or two of the content available? It would be great to see what a near $40 product has to offer first. Thanks.
