Parlez-vous Web 2.0?

November 20th, 2006

Book cover
For all you french-speaking developers out there, there’s a great new book available from Christophe Porteneuve, which basically walks you through all things Web 2.0, including huge chapters on Prototype and script.aculo.us.

The book, Bien développer pour le Web 2.0 is available right now, and really holds tons of stuff on the libraries we love, including not only describing the raw functionality, but also how to understand Prototypish code and write it yourself.

It doesn’t stop there however—you’ll also find info on RSS, REST, XHTML, CSS and other nice abbreviations.

Over the last months, Christophe has been very active in the Prototype/script.aculo.us community with tirelessly helping out on the Rails-Spinoffs Google Group, and submitting patches for Prototype.
