A couple of days ago Patrick Lobacher announced the immediate availability of the book “Modern Extension Development for TYPO3 CMS with Extbase & Fluid” in English language. This book is not only the translated version of the German edition but also revised to take TYPO3 CMS 7 into account. The translation has been reviewed by two English native speakers and the new book has been published by Open Source Press.
The book explains how to use the Extbase framework and Fluid templating engine to extend TYPO3 CMS using modern standards. The first two chapters are starting with the basics of Object-Orientated Programming and Domain Driven Design (DDD) and then continuing with an overview of Extbase. After the theory the Domain Model Creation (Modelling) is demonstrated by using the Extension Builder. Then the book starts headfirst into the creation of your first Extbase extension by explaining the CRUD process, Fluid Templating, Query Manager and Repositories. The last chapters are about TypoScript and FlexForm Configuration, Validation and Error Handling, Relations, Creating Your Own ViewHelpers, Multi-Language, Backend Modules, The Property Mapper and Best Practices.
There is a dedicated website for the book where you can find further information. The table of contents is available for download as well as an excerpt of one of the chapters. The book is internationally available. You can buy it online or in your favorite book shop (ISBN 978-3-95539-151-5).
The authors Patrick Lobacher and Michael Schams took a huge effort to translate the book and see it as a test candidate if there is a market for English TYPO3 books. So it’s up to you, the buyers of this book, to give more books about TYPO3 in English language a chance!
