So I have been able to hack together a few Alloy-UI items from referencing examples from the alloy demo site but my understanding of it is almost zero.

Where should one start to get a good understanding of Allow-UI from the Javascript aspect. I can already create the forms but anytime I need to use the AUI() in a script tag is when it goes downhill fast.

Do I skip looking at Alloy documentation and go to YUI3 documentation? My great wealth of other developers at my company does me no good since everything else uses JQuery...

The best thing to do probably is to join your other developers and use jQuery. I've tried Alloy UI but found that it really didn't have too
much of usuable I18N and L10N support so I had to keep adding functionalities even to make it create a simple input form.

I think I've waited a long time to see Alloy UI mature.

Finally, I've switched back to using jQuery.

For a beginner, the following tutorial is good:

This is the one I'd recommend. If you and your people are good w/ jQuery, this can help you translate to AUI.

I recognize that 1 year ago we didn't have so much documentation and it was hard to begin with Alloy, but now it's different.

Yesterday we release version 2.0 with a new website!

http://alloyui.com

I hope this can help you all much more.

You can also find more information about those changes here: http://www.liferay.com/web/eduardo.lundgren/blog/-/blogs/reintroducing-alloyui-or-meet-alloy-2-0-
