New Book: Mobile App Development with Ionic 2

This post is more than 2 years old.

Guess what I got my grubby little hands on?

A new book!

Yep, a brand-spanking new book on the latest version of Ionic by Chris Griffith. I had the distinct pleasure of being one of the technical reviewers for this book and I enjoyed it quite a lot. I felt like I "knew" Ionic 2 going in, but obviously didn't know everything, and I definitely discovered some great new tips while editing. I also really like Chris' use of one main sample application throughout the book. The reader really gets a chance to see it grow and expand with new features.

is ionic2 considered "stable" by someone? O.o

You mean me? Sure. I love it. I even have a course on it coming out from Lynda (well, not "course", it's more a intro to it).

Ray, could you tell me if the book assume the reader is already familiar with the previous version of Ionic and also Angular? If someone has only known jQuery Mobile + PGB and wants to migrate, is this a suitable book? Thanks.

You do not need to be familiar with either Ionic 1 or Angular 1. I think you should be fine.

Cool, thanks Ray.(Mumbles to self: I wonder why computer books have dull and irrelevant cover artwork? Could have at least use a photo or drawing of a happy person holding a mobile, smiling at how wonderful their new app is! Hmm, it's probably cost related reason.)

Actually, *all* ORA books follow a theme of using interesting animals. I like it. :)
