Dojo Goodness, Part 8 (JSONified Cookies)

by Matthew Russell

Although cookies almost seem like a prehistoric concept in web development, they're a well understood commodity that still serve useful purposes. As such, I wanted to write up a quick column that demonstrates a common pattern involving cookies and JSON that you may find useful from time to time.

Your book looks really good.

Is there any change O'Reilly will make it available as an eBook, ie, PDF?

Neville - As far as I know, it will be available as a PDF sometime very soon after the print version is available, which is on or before 17 June at this point. For what it's worth, I find myself using Spotlight to quickly lookup info in the latest draft version that I have here locally already.

Any update on the date of the release of your book...I'm waiting very patiently!
Will it still be available before June 17th?

Hey Rachel - The *final* edits have taken place and all that's really left now is the actual printing. AFAIK, 17 June is a "no later than" date. I'm actually hopeful to get a box of these books in the mail early next week though I haven't received any info that would confirm this. I'll dig around and see what I can find out and post back here if I discover anything. BTW, thanks for your interest in the book. I really hope you'll find it helpful.

Neville - Hey, I just discovered that the current policy that O'Reilly has is to make a book available as a PDF 60 days after it has been available in paper. I know, I know...not the most desirable circumstances imaginable, but the good news is that they're considering a change to the policy. My advice would be to drop them a line using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page and express interest in getting the PDF available sooner. Who knows. You might be the tipping point.

Sounds good, I'll pre-order now!
