Tutorial Enhancement/developing web 2.0 portal like pageflakes on agile platform 

By Tmlewin . on 1 Dec 2010
Hi,Everyone ,i am quite new to the agile platform and  really impressed with what i have seen so far.But i will like to make some suggestions with regards to enabling newcomers to the platform quickly grasp most of the advanced features because some of the newcomers are experts on other tech like .net or java and they will like to know how to use the platforms advanced features in building complex apps like web 2.0  portals. Here are my suggestions
1)Firstly  i would like to see very comprehensive ebooks targeting advanced features in the platform and how to use it in developing  apps ranging from fairly simple to complex apps.
2)These learning materials should be as diverse as possible in such a way that will show new users how to do things that they are already use to in other platforms very effectively in agile platform.Just like for asp.net,they are tons of reading materials that can teach you most of the technologies involved for the platform right from novice l to professional level.
3)Finally, have anybody attempted building a sample or prototype of a web 2.0 portal like pageflakes on the agile platform? because personally,i was quite successful in achieving that on visual studio .net,but i havent tried doing so on agile platform and i can imagine its going to be cool developing such apps on the plat. thanks.
