Hi Richard,
 
I recently converted a Flash site into a 3D jQuery site using Raphael JS.
 
Enjoyed working with it.
 
Thanks.

When it comes to libraries for non-user interface related features, underscore (http://documentcloud.github.com/underscore/) is my favorite. It's a real charm to use it in conjunction with Appcelerator. Depending on the scenario, frameworks like DateJS (http://www.datejs.com/) are very good at dealing with Date related functions.

For web development, I still prefer to use JQuery, although I remember fondly the days of MooTools and the likes.

When dealing with Appcelerator, getting a feel for which patterns work best and how to handle various the asynchronous event handling can initially be a struggle. The asynchronous event handling still gives me flashbacks of the days when I did ActionScript development to build RIA based applications that communicated with a Java backend.

I heavily subscribe to building event driven systems since they're easier to scala, but such a pain in the ass to maintain over time. Languages like ErLang and Scala are working on improving that greatly with Akka etc.

Now time to clean up some of this code with my new found knowledge of how to write better maintainable legacy code.
