Books: Practical Plone 3
Some days ago a new book about Plone was published. Practical Plone 3: A Beginner's Guide to Building Powerful Websites is some kind of a community book, as it was not written by one person only. A group of Plone experts has combined their efforts to build such a great work.
This book covers Plone from the basic tasks (create a plone site, add some content to it, manage portlets) to more complex ones (like creating a buildout environment, managing workflows, creating your own content types, etc).
I just ordered my copy some hours ago from Packt Publishing and I'll receive my paperback copy in 6-9 days. Meanwhile I'll be taking a look over the ebook copy (just +5 eur if you order both copies at the same time).
It seems like this new book will be the perfect companion for Professional Plone Development the book from Martin Aspeli that has been by my side since last summer, helping me a lot understanding Plone internals and how to do custom Plone development.
If you are new to Plone and you would like to use it as your de-facto CMS system, let me recommend you to get both books, then you should begin with Practical Plone 3: A Beginner's Guide to Building Powerful Websites and then follow with Professional Plone Development. You will master Plone development in no-time!
