The Dojo toolkit enables web application developers to create Rich Internet Applications by offering a wide variety of features that save development time and effort. From DOM helpers and Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) to a full-blown widget library and object-orientation features, Dojo includes virtually everything you need to build large-scale Ajax-powered web applications. If the functions you are looking for are not included in Dojo itself, it's likely that you can find them in DojoX, a repository of extensions and experimental features that are not included in the Base or Core modules of the toolkit. In this article series, learn how to develop Dojo-powered applications from the ground up, covering the basics, Dojo's great object-orientation features, and the Dijit user interface library. By the end of this series, you will be well prepared to develop Dojo applications of your own.
