In this tutorial, learn about many of the concepts of Dojo and the Dijit widget library through the development of a fully featured sample application, a contact manager system. This application lets a user browse, create, edit, and remove contacts (and contact groups) from a MySQL database. PHP is used on the server side to communicate with the database, with Dojo and the Dijit component library providing a rich, Ajax-powered user interface.
