DojoCampus – The best Dojo learning resource

Posted by Shane O'Sullivan on April 9, 2008

DojoCampus.org is an ever-growing learning resource for users of the Dojo Ajax toolkit, and also for anyone wanting to do cool (and mundane) things with JavaScript. It is designed to complement, rather than replace, the existing Dojo documentation. It features:

  • Tutorials - examples aimed at both beginners and advanced hackers
  • Videos – step by step videos showing off Dojo capabilities, and showing how to get the most out of the toolkit.
  • Cookies – small nuggets of handy information, as discovered by Dojo hackers. These come both from the Dojo contributors, and can also be submitted by the general public through the website.
  • Feature Explorer – a great demo engine, written by myself and Nikolai Onken, that shows off most of the capabilities of the Dojo toolkit, and shows how it is done. I wrote a previous post about this here.
  • Community Polls – polls to allow the community to vote on what features they would prefer were covered next in tutorials, cookies and demos.
  • Dojo News – updates on what’s happening in Dojo-Land.

Many people have helped out on making DojoCampus what it is today, but biggest props have to go to Peter Higgins and Nikolai Onken, who have both done, and are doing, a great job.  However, it’s up to the community now to participate and make it even better.  You can:

  • Submit new Dojo Cookies
  • Submit new tutorials
  • Send in ideas about something that would make a good tutorial.  A good example is to take two technologies that may not be used together in demos or unit tests, but would complement each other.
  • Once the development environment is stable for the Feature Explorer, you will be able to submit new demos.
