While there have always been plenty of resources for learning about our frameworks and tools, they haven’t always been in one place. Many community members will know of our old wiki system for information on older versions of our products. We host screencast and SenchaCon videos on Vimeo. We create educational posts for our blog and in our newsletters. There are comprehensive guides and examples found within our API documentation. And of course there is valuable information found throughout our forums. The time you spend looking around for all this information is time you could spend writing code!
The primary aim of the Learning Center, therefore, is to bring everything into one place. From the start page you’ll see we’ve curated all the material into product-specific sections, and categorized everything according to difficulty and relevant product version. This means that you can quickly sort or filter the content to look for each type of content. Want to browse through the new Ext JS 4 guides? Our famous Animator screencasts? Introductions to Sencha Touch? You’ve got ’em.
What’s more, because we’ve built the Learning Center on the same CMS as our web site, you can comment on each article, share them over social media, and even subscribe to RSS feeds of new material. And if you want to flag any errors you find, you can even drop us direct feedback about individual articles, right from the sidebar. Oh, and of course keyword search.
A resource like the Learning Center is, of course, never finished. We’re always adding more content, importing legacy articles for older products, and working directly with you, our community, to create fresh, compelling new material. If you want to help out and achieve instant community fame, let us know if you’d like to create an article or screencast and you can be a part of it too.
But as of today, we’re satisfied that you’ll already find it to be a rich and helpful place to learn about your favorite web frameworks and tools. Let us know what you think, and we hope you enjoy using it!
