In case you missed the announcement post yesterday, MooTools 1.2 Beginner’s Guide is a book that I wrote with Garrick Cheung. The book is a hands-on approach to learning professional-level web development using the powerful MooTools framework. The book is packed with usable examples that help the learner understand the concepts using a pragmatic teaching method.

Thirty years old, wife, two kids, one on the way. Why do I need it? Because, I’m tired of leaning on jQuery, the Toyota of Javascript libraries….

February 24th, 2010

Who wouldn’t want a free book on MooTools – especially with all the javascript frameworks out there.

I better use Linux over Windows, Firefox over IE, Aptana vs Dreamweaver, Gimp over Photoshop. But still code in jQuery as most of the web-developers. Your book can change this last issue. This is why I want your book.

Per

February 24th, 2010

I would love to get my hands on this book, i don´t know very much about mootools but i wanna learn! If its a learning-by-doing-kinda-book for beginners i´m your geek … and you guys would be my Motools gurus for eternity.

I need to foreget jQuery for a while…

Ed Brenner

February 24th, 2010

I’ve just started into using Javascript and playing with the various libraries that are out there. Currently I stick with jQuery. But as I understand it from friends of mine that use MooTools its the bomb over jQuery in a few areas.

I’m eager to learn, use and teach others what can be accomplished with javascript. But know that I have to have the knowledge to teach them. This would help immensely.

Currently I do screencasts over at http://supportcasts.com which focuses on web development using RealMacSoftware’s RapidWeaver. Yep I’m a Mac Boi. And all the javascript casts so far have been about jQuery.

It’s time I expanded my limitations.

Simon Willans

February 24th, 2010

This seems like a pretty nice offer. I’d like it because I’d actually like a set text to read through and learn thoughroughly without internet access.

Hello Jacob,
I saw your first post about this book and was excited to hear about this contest.

Of the 10 or so Joomla based websites, MooTools powers a great deal of them. Unfortunately, I don’t understand it enough to troubleshoot when problems occur and my lack of knowledge prevents me from taking advantage of what appears to be a powerful application framework for the web.

Thanks for running this contest!

¿Porqué?… siempre buscamos aprender, siempre queremos hacer lo mejor con ese saber y estaremos dispuestos a compartirlo en algún momento. No solo se trata de ganar un libro, se trata de adquirir conocimiento, de tener lo mejor para el futuro. MooTools, es un buen ejemplo de ello.

Fancisco

February 25th, 2010

Because Mootools is just… (wait-for-it) mootastic. There isn’t a single day that goes by when I don’t look at some moo code and say, moo… this is awesome.

I’d rather have it as an eBook… but all moo’s welcome.

Abraão Coelho

February 25th, 2010

Why? This was the first JS Library that showed me wonderful effects instead of using heavy-flash animations. I was like a kid that couldn’t stop playing with the little 3Kb-ball from moofx =D. I would love the paperback version so I can carry it around.

Sebastian

February 25th, 2010

The (by the way fantastic) CMS TYPOlight makes use of Mootools 1.2 to provide AJAX and interesting effects. I have always wanted to be able to create useful Javascript-enhanced extensions for the system.

And as you’re asking: I like to have something in my hands… :)

I’d use the book as a giveaway myself to reach out to someone who is a web designer but is not all that familiar with jQuery or MooTools. This can be used an inspirational book. Please send a paperback copy!

Keep up the great work and thanks for the giveaway!

I remember sitting down and learning HTML with the 24 Hours of HTML book by SAMS Publishing when I was in grade school. There’s just something really great about opening up a book, and building cool things while working through the examples. Always looking for an excuse to relive that experience

I was just reading about MooTools 2 days ago. I was comparing it to jQuery. I’ve decided to try to use it for my next site. It looks more interesting than jQuery. Though, thus far I have only used jQuery.

I will test some of the MooTools special effects plugins.

Paper back would be great, but e-book will do too. After all, it’s about what’s inside :).

I’d would love to put my hands on that book because I’m a huge JavaScript freak. I was always and am still into raw JavaScript, but the best things about being freelancer is there’s never a good excuse to stop learning – so I dig into jQuery, but that’s not enough for me. Want to learn different libraries and MooTools is absolutely on my list :).

February 26th, 2010

What to say… I really don’t know what the hell is MooTools. I have not worked with it before and I even don’t know if I need it! So having a paperback copy of that book should be a great start for learning what it is, what can I do with it and starting using it!

Diego Enrique Finol

February 26th, 2010

I’d love a paperback copy of the book. I’m the technical web coordinator at a public Venezuelan university which is going through a harsh budget crisis due to cutbacks made by the government. A copy of the book would help us continue to develop the University’s portal with little financial resources as we’ve been doing so far.

Did some looking into MooTools and found out that it is, in fact, an easy to use framework.

I would like a copy of the book so I can further educate myself in different javascript frameworks (as each one is better for some jobs than others).

Hi!
Of course, a MooTools 1.2 Beginner’s Guide would help me out immensely, as I find it difficult to wrap my head around this subject matter. A book would be really great at this point.

I’m a designer with very strong technical skills. I’m self taught on all the tools I use for development. I’ve worked with many different frameworks but need to decide on which JavaScript framework to use. Based on your tutorials, Mootools looks extremely easy to learn and I’d love a copy (doesn’t matter hard or soft copy) so I can expand my skills with js.

Deamonic Angel

February 27th, 2010

I would love to have a paperback copy of this book! I’m currently a student in Graphic Design working on building some great websites in my spare time and this could really help my progress into different web development areas. Having a paperback copy too will alow me to take it everywhere with me to read whenever I get the chance and share what is in the book with other students on my course. They may even opt to buy one for themselves!

Carlos R.

February 28th, 2010

Being a web designer, I’m frustrated sometimes when my vision is not executed accurately since I don’t usually write my design’s code (I usually pass on my designs to the coding experts). That’s the reason why I’m now starting to learn how to convert my designs into coded pages so that I can do it myself and hence I’ll be able to accurately port my design vision into it’s coded form. And this awesome giveaway just came at the right time! It’s perfect for learners and beginners like and would definitely give me a jumpstart with my goal to learn another discipline. If I win, a paperback would be great as I’m quite not good with reading on a screen for long sessions. Hoping to win!

angemy

February 28th, 2010

being mostly a website designer, I have been asked by my workplace to start to learn some php and javascript and frameworks, so I can understand how my design will work in with all of the coding. This book would be extremely useful.

As an out of work Webmaster, I am finding ways to make my portfolio more attractive to possible employers. On the front end side of things, it would be great to be able to show that I can add impressive elements to my employer’s website, allowing me to stand out. I’m well versed with JavaScript, but adding a framework like MooTools would be a real step in the right direction. Of course, the paperback would be preferable, but I am certainly fine with a digital version.

I work for a budding social networking site and primarily work with PHP/MySQL/Javascript/AJAX.

Like all the people, I want the book, I study all about websites, from paper prototyping to programming in PHP, and where I live (Tenerife, Canary Islands) is hard to find good books. It’s a surprise for me to find your message in twitter, I did’nt know about it, and I’m happy to write something here and try with all the people.
Thanks!

I’d love to win this book in an attempt to break my jQuery addiction. There’s a nagging feeling in the back of my head that jQuery is the most popular javascript framework for a reason, but I need to challenge that assumption.
