    Default Sencha Touch in Action is finally in print!

    Thank you to my Co-Authors, Anthony DeMoss and Mitchell Simoens, for your hard work!

    We're finally at print and the books will be shipped from the printer factory 7/10/13.

    This one (huge) image demonstrates why this book is *the must have* manuscript for Sencha Touch!

    Well done. Writing a book is one hard slog.

    Very nice, but I am still waiting for you to finish Ext JS in Action which has been in MEAP since october 2011!! Moreover, the errata posted on the forum for this book are over 200. So, I don't know what to believe or not when I read your book.

    Are you talking about Sencha Touch in Action has over 200 errors reported or Ext JS in Action? There are a few bugs in Sencha Touch in Action but no where near 200 in the final print that I have seen.

    As I stated in the quote Ext JS in Action (2nd edition). I bought this book almost a year ago, still in MEAP, still a substantial list of errors. See for yourself on the Manning forum. I just got stuck on the drag and drop code in the book, css specs didn't work, code was probably still related to Ext 3.

    It is a good book, only still not finished and for me too late to be usefull.

    I'm not an author of that book so cannot speak for the status of any bugs fixed. Was just trying to get clarification as this thread was meant for Sencha Touch in Action.
