Useful EPiServer Dojo links (updated 04/06/2015)

Tags: Episerver Dojo Aug 14, 2014

Dojo logo EPiServer's UI has always been open to modification, however EPiServer 7 onward introduced a paradigm shift in the UI as the editing interface is now a single page application built with Dojo. If you don't already know Dojo then there is a little learning to get your head around it. So I put together a list of EPiServer Dojo links that may prove useful if you want to work with Dojo in EPiServer.

Please let me know if you know in the comments below or on @davidknipe if I missed anything and/or you have a link you'd like to add.
