Thanks everyone. I knew about the upcoming third edition. I'm not sure I want to wait until May to learn the "new" API (pretty old actually). I'd like to find a resource that goes through the new API. I realize Tom White's examples are offered with the new API online, I was just hoping for something more explicitly instructional.
I'll figure something out.
