Wrox announced on Amazon its first book on Adobe Apollo :
Professional Apollo by Charles Freedman (Author), Clint Modien (Author), Ben Lucyk (Author), Ryan Manning (Author)
We have to wait until September but reading the description of the book it seams cool. Can't wait to see the table of content !
(via Amazon) Wrox’s Professional Apollo will be the core guide for building Apollo applications. The authors for this book have been carefully selected to represent each key aspect of existing web development and translate those languages, architectures and frameworks into successful strategies for desktop application development with Apollo.
Each chapter is positioned to build the reader’s knowledge base of Apollo’s core languages and APIs. Professional developers familiar with a specific language have a reference to applying their existing skills to Apollo.
The book builds progressively to more advanced topics. While contextual code is used in most chapters as simple execution examples, the final chapters are dedicated to real world applications that put the skills of the entire book to work.
A new site dedicate to Adobe Apollo has born with the goal to be a comprehensive membership-based community with real-time updated information about Apollo :
