I've read and skimmed a few other ExtJS books and none are as in-depth as this book. It is primarily useful to beginners, but even if you've been working with ExtJS it probably has value in filling in the gaps of knowledge (I've used ExtJS for a couple of years and found it informational). The author walks you through creating an application through "lecture" then labs. This includes using Sencha Cmd and a vast majority of the ExtJS framework, theming, as well as setting up you environment.
I wished that an ExtJS 6 version was available, but really the main thing missing would be the new Fashion theming and 'modern' i.e. Sencha Touch components. Otherwise, this book covers everything you'd need for creating MVVM apps for desktop browsers in ExtJS 6.
Just a note though, the source code for the book is available on GitHub, took me a while to figure it out as the location of it is provided in Appendix rather than upfront
Sencha has moved on to Ext JS 6, but I was able to use the knowledge I gained here, working with Ext JS 5 to get me over the learning curve, and upgrading was easy after that. I do recommend using the same version of the tools as the book uses. If you try to use it directly with v6, you might have a few challenges, as regards file locations within projects. But the bulk of it will still be great knowledge.
Kudos to Steven Drucker! And thank you!
Definitely worth the purchase.
