The Polymer is currently the best new thing, so it’s becoming more and harder to locate exactly what I (you) need. I’m building this list primarily for myself. Hopefully, it will help someone else.
While this list is not intended to be the ultimate guide to learning everything Polymer I will update it as I discover new posts and as new posts are suggested.

Note: If this tutorial was helpful, need further clarification, something is not working or do you have a request for another Ionic post? Furthermore, if you don't like something about this blog, if something is bugging you, don't like how I'm doing stuff here, again leave me a comment below. I'm here to help you, I expect the same from you. Feel free to comment below, subscribe to my blog, mail me to, or follow and mention me on twitter (@gajotres). Thanks and have a nice day!

PS. If you want my help, if possible (even if it takes you some time to do that), create a working example I can play with. Use Plunker for AngularJS based questions or jsFiddle for jQuery/jQuery Mobile based questions.
