The following guest spot is courtesy of Trevor Ward (@thewarpedcoder) and Boydlee Pollentine (@boydleep), the authors of the new “Appcelerator Titanium: Patterns & Best Practices” book. Trevor and Boydlee are both active Titanium community members and Titans contributing across a wide-range of activities, including organizing Titanium conferences, speaking at mobile  conferences, hosting Titanium trainings and helping out on the Q&A to name a few.

It is nice to be asked by Appcelerator to contribute to their blog. Especially when you get the chance to promote a new book.

Over the last few months Boydlee Pollentine and myself (Trevor Ward) have been working on providing a resource we hope will help people using Titanium. On the 23rd February Appcelerator Titanium : Patterns and Best Practices was released via packt publishing.

The book starts by covering some best practices for JavaScript and Titanium, before showing how to implement commonJS and cross platform design methods. The final chapter explains how to implement a non SQL solution using jsonDB. While writing this post I thought I would see if anybody had reviewed the book, and Jason Kneen said this:

“This book is essential reading for anyone developing with Titanium. If you’re new to Titanium, this book will give you a firm foundation on which to build your apps to ensure code is clearly written, well-structured and application resources are well managed. Even if you consider yourself an experienced developer there are still tips in this book that will improve your code and the performance of your applications. Some great advice on reusability of code and cross-platform development too.”

We hope you like it and it provides a useful benefit to your coding.

The book can be purchased through any Amazon store or directly from the publishers.
