    Default Learning Resources for Sencha Architect

    Learning Resources for Sencha Architect


    Hi there,

    We're deciding to switch to use the Sencha stack from Flex/Flash. We like this new Architect product as it presents a lot of promises. However we're yet to find good learning resources to get us started on Sencha Architect. Yes, there are the documents here and a few videos, but in general it's lacking a few detailed tutorials to guide newbie through building applications with Architect for Ext JS and Touch.

    So... my question to the community is... what's the best tutorials out there that can help a newbie to get started on Architect. Books? Videos? Articles? (Please exclude the $3K training program by Sencha It's just not feasible for now...)

    Or will Sencha Design's document/tutorials still apply to the Sencha Architect?

    Thanks in advanced!!

    Thank you Phil! I've been to the first doc already but couldn't find my detailed tutorials. Thanks for the zip file link, I'll check into it.

    I found two to share here:

    I have to agree, there are not many decent guides, and what there is are usually lacking in some way, things are not fully explained.

    This is especially true with jumping right into Architect 2, without using just the SDK first.

    Default Agreed, Architect 2 needs a tutorial

    Agreed, Architect 2 needs a tutorial


    I assume you're going for a form of accessibility and ease of use for this new product. If that's the case, you really need tutorials to support that goal. I've downloaded the trial and am trying to figure it out... if I can't I probably won't convert to a paid user, but if you had some tutorial path and it is as intuitive and easy to use at it appears to be then I certainly would! Seems like such a small investment against all the work you did to develop this product.

    For example, I was able to follow Michael Hartly's Rails by Example tutorial all the way to completion through the RubyMine IDE, and now that I'm done I'm definitely going to upgrade my RubyMine trial to the paid version.

    The "Learn Architect" section is badly lacking in useful information. In fact, most of what is there is relevant to 1.x. There's only a couple things on 2.x. Even the featured screen cast is 1.x, and it doesn't even have voice over.. its just a speed-demo to rock music, not a tutorial!

    If anyone finds any good resources for this I'd love to hear about it before my trial runs out.
