I was very disappointed in this book. I received it today and found that it had 38 pages of content, the other 15 or so pages were advertisements and even an entirely blank (both sides?) page. Half of the content is code examples in large print. They have no screen shots of what the code outputs on the browser. There is not a single screen shot or graphical image in the entire "book" (which is less than some magazine articles.) At $22.99 I have never felt so ripped off after purchasing a book. The content in this book can be obtained quickly by looking at Telerik documentation. I literally read this book over a lunch break. I was hoping for a complete review real life examples of this control in use... I've never returned a product to Amazon before but I'll be returning this book because I don't feel that the author or publisher should be rewarded for selling such little content at this price.
This is a very short fast paced guide that serves it's purpose well. Kendo UI Grids are straight forward and they basically allow you to quickly interact with tabular data, as we all know is used time and time again in our web applications. Using C.R.U.D. models and MVC or Template Frameworks you'd find yourself writing the same old plugins over and over. I put Kendo to the test and it actually did help a lot and seemed to get the job done with minimal code.
I'm used to writing out a C.R.U.D. model and then the get/set requests that are typically assigned with them, then I move onto formatting the data. I typically rely on jQuery/PHP for my work and I end up getting used to my system and updating it occasionally, using Kendo actually cuts that out.
Great introductory to the API and highly recommended, the author did a great job getting me introduced rapidly and this is something I found extremely useful. [...]
This book introduces you to an amazing framework Kendo Grid which boost the functionality of your normal tabular data to something more dynamic and more useful. The best part of this book is that its less of theory and more of action i.e. you will be seeing more of examples than long theory chapters. After reading this book you will be in a position to start working on Kendo Grid in no time.
The book begins with simple example and then gradually expose you to various options that framework provides. The book begins with how to initialize kendo grid and then proceeds with topics like changing the theme of the grid, sorting functionality, creating grid within grid which is an advanced stuff.
To conclude, Instant Kendo UI Grid is a great book if you know fundamental html, css and JS and want to implement this framework in your project and at the same time cannot afford to spend too much time reading all the theory.
