To finish the year off I have a couple of book reviews coming. Two unsolicited, and one at the request of Packt Publishing, who are providing me a copy of their new Ext JS book called Ext JS 3.0 Cookbook. I previously reviewed a book from them titled Learning Ext JS, which was pretty good. However, I didn’t end up doing much with Ext JS. My main concern was that I’d have to release the application under the GPL (using Ext JS in an application without buying a commercial Ext JS license causes the application’s source code to fall under the GPL, which is an open source license). Though I currently have a couple ideas in mind that I wouldn’t mind open sourcing, so this book may provide some interesting examples/ideas which I can polish them up with.
Also, Packt provided me with an affiliate link, so if you buy a Packt book after following the above link, I’ll get a small cut. I’ve noticed a lot of blogs seem to use affiliate links when doing reviews, however, I figured I’d make sure and state it just so you all know up front. This wont effect my review, but I figured it was worth stating for transparency reasons.
