I’m blogging!

Welcome to my blog, everyone!

This my first article (from hopefully a longer list). With each post I’m going to try and give tips & tricks on Javascript in general and particularly ExtJS. Ocasionally, there are going to be posts on Python / Django and PHP.

I hope you’ll find my posts both useful and enjoyable.

// dispatch a custom event to render the templates

// create the application
new TodoApp();
