This passage raised my expectations high and I'm happy to say that I was never disappointed.
It's funny - I think this is one of those situations where trying to "remove" confusion actually creates more confusion :) Perhaps semantic clarity in this context is a Pyrrhic victory.
@Ben: Too bad that Early Releases are not also available at the iBookstore yet.
Did you get the ePub or PDF version?? If ePub, when you look at it in iBooks, does it show up in the Books or PDFs collection? Or does it create an ePubs collection?
All of these great books lately are part of a big conspiracy to keep us from getting rich.
The O'Reilly Media site gives you an option to download this book in either PDF or ePub version. I got the ePub version, threw it into iTunes and it synced right over to the iPad no problem. It shows up in the iBooks collection.
Now, what I'm *really* irritated about is that I purchased a different ePub book from Borders Books and I can't view it without the use of Adobe Digital Editions. That right there is highway robbery!!
Coincidentally(?), O'Reilly just offered this book as their "ebook deal of the day". Use code DDM92 for 50% off today (5/31) only!
Maybe Tim is a fan of your blog? :)
Taking what he has done in the book, I'd love to take it and run with it a bit outside of any existing Framework. In the long run, probably a foolish move since these MVC frameworks seem very well thought out. But, I like to find the "wrong" way to do things before I go, "Ooooh, so that's why they do it that way :)".
But, in general, I love everything they are talking about.
Oh awesome stuff! Well worth it.
I ordered this on Amazon. Release is predicted to be in September. I may cancel and order from O'Reily.
Also ExtJS 4 had a good MVC framework you can use with their projects.
The version on O'Reilly is like 99% complete. Honestly, the few sections that were missing were not critical ones (in my opinion). I feel like I got total value out of the first release (although I think a new release was just issued).
I'm gonna be playing around with some MVC right now :)
