Comments about oreilly Beginning PhoneGap:

A good beginner tutorial for developing Phonegap applications. The author explains how to setup a preliminary development environment with different Javascript stacks (Sencha Touch and JQuery mobile). The example code is for Phonegap 2, but can be deployed with Phonegap 3 as well. The author also explains how to setup a simple web service which will work with the app using node and express. The mBaas service Feed Henry is also given as an example, presumably because the author works for Feed Henry, but you can use the same info to integrate with any mBaas. The video is 109 minutes long, but it is compressed quite well so don't let it fool you (some code parts are fast forwarded so no time wasted). Overall I think it is good value if you are looking to start developing Phonegap applications.

As a con side I could say I wish Angular/Ionic frameworks were also covered, and some words about Phonegap's Build service would be nice. Also I would appreciate if the examples were written for Phonegap 3 from the beginning.
