So why did I enjoy it this much? This book really covers it all ... from setting up a dev environment on your local puter to finetuning your store at the end. In between there is lots of tips on business decisions, never in a dry voice though but full of examples and easily understandable explanations why some things just work and others do not. The writer has a chatty tone which is refreshing to read and never boring.
All admin parameters are explained, contribution installation is demystified and tips for turning your store into a fun and secure shopping experience pop out from all pages. A perfect guide for those newbies who enjoy reading the knowledgebase or forumns but still like to have a book on hand for easy reference. Even a total beginner could build a fab store with the step by step explanations found here.
Especially the security part is a topic often neglected in new shop creation and will distinguish your shop from those which just don't make it. Ditto for looks and functionality to create a pleasant shopping environment for the visitor and an easily managable backend for the shop owner.
As I'm totally in LOVE with osC (geez now that's a secret I tell you here so NOT!!!) I felt like a little sponge while reading the book. Yes there were passages that were new to me too and that I eagerly implemented in my stores. So good for business and so fun at the same time. Enjoy!
It is written in a casual, easy-to-read way, and is suitable for folks new to e-commerce technology as well as people like me who need some orientation before setting out to customize things.
This is my second Packt book, and I am very happy with the overall quality.
this book was the one I used to get me out of the gate quickest *because* of the quality and the no-nonsense explanations.
As a computer system administrator I have found this book to be a valuable resource to anyone aiming to build and grow an on line shop with osCommerce.
Please keep the good job.
OSCommerce isn't rocket science, but it IS really complicated if you want to modify it in any way. This book provides a vocabulary and a rudimentary framework for how OSCommerce is structured and how its parts interact.
This book isn't all you need to develop a great OSCommerce store, but it sure does get you started!
Glad I bought it!
