Good book for WebWorks development?

I'm having a tough time learning WebWorks development in an unstructured way(through all of the docs on this site). Can anybody recommend a book that goes through WebWorks development? I'm struggling! THANKS!

No books that I know of. There was a quick spurt of BlackBerry books two years ago. Mine released right before Widgets (now called WebWorks) were officially released and I didn't want to include beta stuff in the book.

Webworks = HTML5 apps. Nothing special about it besides how to use the SDK which would take up one chapter max if such a book existed.

 

Note: this is a good thing! It's very much Web Standards compliant. As a result, apps developed under WebWorks will port super easy to pretty much any platform. I've already done it with my apps.

Thanks guys. I gathered a bunch of the development pdf's yesterday. From here on out it's experimenting I suppose.

It's a stretch, but if you happen to know a Domino developer who subscribes to The View (www.eview.com) I wrote an article on Widgets for the magazine that could help get you started. You can find the article here: http://www.eview.com/eview/volr6.nsf/0/79586DE6FA5B52E285257861004DA2F0?opendocument.
