Description (last modified by dylan)

Some comments and suggestions about how the dojo web site markets the dojo toolkit:

    I really like the support for SVG but the other day I went to the web site 
to see how I could use Dojo, especially with Rails - was totally confused in 
looking for simple examples. To capture users, Dojo needs quick examples like:
    How to use Dojo with PHP, or Rails, or Django in 3 minutes
    How to add a graph component on your web site in 3 minutes
    How to add a popup dialog box in 3 minutes

    Most users don’t have time to experiment or figure out documentation 
to even see if it’s something we want - we need solutions fast and some quick, easy tutorials get us going

    Some thoughts on what would help the marketing of Dojo… I hope the Dojo devs 
seriously consider publishing “sneak preview apps/samples” of Dojo 0.9 live on their 
site (ideally, under the “Demos” link). I had to dig into the 0.9 beta release’s code 
to find some test pages which illustrated some but not all of the new stuff (which 
does look very nice to me, I might note). If you want to convince people of how good 
your candy is, you should really show them the goods and give ‘em a taste, even if it 
is still a bit limited at this point.

    They should also seriously consider creating a page (easily found from the 
top-level page) of “here’s where it’s used” links and screenshots, to really get 
people thinking not just about “well, what can you do”, but “who’s using it?”

http://showcase.dojotoolkit.org is live and will be part of the new web site, so that part of this ticket is resolved.

Sample apps are a work in progress, and included in the new site... that just leaves the other suggestions (Dojo in 3 minutes with server side languages, graph component, and popup dialog)
