I'm looking for some resources on how to get started on Sencha Touch. Any pointers? (btw testing new Q&A Functionality).

Any chance that book will be finished this year?

I cannot recall how many months ago the last update was, and we've had large updates of the code since. I'm glad your book for ExtJS 3 covers many of the new features released in the latest Sencha Touch.

Outside of the uncertainty of when the whole text will be available, the greatest disappointment is a personal one, where the main reason for interest in buying those books was for Ajax/JSON as applied to this framework and to improve my ExtJS/Sencha Touch coding. The introduction clearly states that no aspect of the code required to return the data structure would be covered. Have since resolved the differences, but it would have been nice to be able to write a completed stand-alone demo from the text.

Secha training was unavailable through requiring a minimum of 6, else the $12k for 1-2 people to become acquainted with another framework blows out the ROI. I love so much about the framework, but unfortunately they make it hard for management to love it also and justify its use/cost.
