Reason: new examples added
Wow - very nice examples, thank you.
Would be even better for newbies if they would also include the Sencha Architect project files .
Any chance you would want to port an example of a simple tree with a JSON store?
Would be greatly appreciated.
Any advice for newbies?
Do you have any advice for newbies using ext js?

These examples can give you a more real feeling of a real app, because you can't have an application implemented with extjs only, you need a server side technology to integrate with.
- Learning extjs takes time. Start learning what you are going to use first (most people start learning grids and forms, since they are the most used components on web apps).With time, explore the other components, so you know they exist when you need them. Layouts are also very important.
- Learn how to search and use the documentation. The Sencha docs are the best I've ever seen. Most of the times, you will find what you need there.
- Read the forum. Don't come here only when you have a question. Read other user's questions and solutions. I've learned so many tricks doing this.
- There are several videos on vimeo and youtube about extjs 4. You can also watch them.
- Read a book. There a couple of books published about ExtJS (ExtJS 4 First Look and ExtJS in Action). If you are a newbie, I really recommend ExtJS in Action.
At this moment I have your book in my desktop.
I found it interesting, I am still reading, but it is not very useful for learning with no previous knowledge (I am new to Sencha ExtJS and I am using SenchaArchitect), but that is expected according to you.
I see there is a lot of examples of graphics,etc. Always simple stuff, but when things starts to be more complicated, realistic, etc. You cannot find good documentation and complete examples.
In your book, the most interesting part about Models, Associations and MVC architecture has a few pages. There is no information about authentication using the framework.
I think this would be nice for people that is trying to learn Ext JS 4 with no previous knowledge of Ext JS 3. Even for experienced users is useful.
I am planing to write some posts about the topic you suggested.
