As part of our great updates to the Dojo Tutorials for Dojo 1.8, we’ve been busy creating several new tutorials.

Feature Detection and Device Optimized Builds

preview Dojo 1.7+ now uses the popular has() pattern for feature detection in combination with a has()-aware build system. While it is easy enough to write feature detection tests with ad-hoc JavaScript expressions, the has() pattern defines a specific syntax such that the build system can detect these feature-based branches, and one can create application builds that are highly optimized for specific devices, with known feature shims factored out.

Check out the Feature Detection and Device Optimized Builds tutorial for Dojo 1.8 and 1.7!
