NativeScript in Action – Deal of the Day

As you may already know Mike and I have been hard at work writing NativeScript in Action. Last week NativeScript in Action when into MEAP (Manning Early Access Program). Go on over and check it out (Chapter 1 is free!)

I’m pleased to announce that NativeScript in Action is the Deal of the Day for 7/18/2016! Just head on over to Manning’s Deal of the Day page at: and use code “dotd071816au”.

Mike and I are still working on NativeScript in Action so now is a great time to become an early adopter. Over the next few months we will continue to release more chapters through the MEAP process for you to enjoy.

    The book is focused on Angular? I saw that there’s already a book about NativeScript that isn’t focused on Angular integration, which is what I was looking for to learn (mainly because I’m Ionic 2 developer and I’m thinking about migrate to NativeScript). I must confess that I don’t like the way Nativescript apps are written. But since they started to support Angular, everything has changed! It really grabbed my attention and let me with the will to learn!

    I really hope that this book will have dedicated chapters to Angular.

      Thanks, Elias. Right now, a chapter focusing on Angular 2 is up in the air. We haven’t made any firm decisions either way. We want to book to be for the community, so we’re relying on feedback to help us drive the direction. Yours is certainly appreciated and welcome! Thanks again!

    I bought your book from the MEAP version. I totally agree with Elias: Go with Angular with no fear. Angular 2 is getting stronger every day and the community as a whole is adopting ES6 as a standard for JS. Ionic 2 is also based on Angular 2, so that Nativescript turns out to be a natural replacement to it.

    Angular is rapidly becoming the go-to framework for mobile and it’s a real game changer. Also, its sintax has a strong appeal to enterprises, due to the similarity to Java and C#. There’s other Nativescript books but none of them focusing on Angular. So I think it’s a great opportunity for you guys to shine!

      First, thanks for your support! The Angular discussion is on-going, and we will certainly take this into consideration, as this is a book for the community.
