Description

Way back in the beginning of Dojo, we had some posts about "The Dojo Way".

A tremendous amount has changed since then, and I believe it's time for us to provide an update.

I believe we should have a blog post that eases people into the new Dojo paradigms or way of doing things. For example, "new to this release, you should start doing X, Y, and Z, and here's why (change in philosophy, approach, etc.)." My thinking is that it's a way to sort of update someone to the new Dojo way of thinking rather than just a perhaps mundane release notes section that doesn't necessarily explain the why or impact of a change.

For example, promises, data-* attributes, object store, require/AMD, has, sockets, etc. Also any other fundamental changes, like perhaps Shane's blog post about making Dojo faster: shaneosullivan.wordpress.com/2010/08/28/dojo-gets-a-speed-boost-on-ie6-and-ie7/ (so you don't just make your app slower with your own custom code), etc.

A friendly introduction to the Dojo concepts that have changed over say the past year for someone familiar with Dojo, and looking to move up to Dojo 1.6.

And I think this post should live in many places, not just on the Dojo blog, but perhaps also on Script Junkie or other places.

Assigning to Peter to get initial feedback, as I don't feel qualified to write this, but am happy to help organize it into something that's well targeted, etc.

Modern Dojo, http://dojotoolkit.org/documentation/tutorials/1.8/modern_dojo , sufficiently addresses this. Now, to better promote it...
