Best practices for ensuring a successful Ektron web project

Ektron provides a complete platform that features all the functionality needed to create, deploy, and manage a website, and this book walks you through the streamlined process of building an Ektron-powered site. Using a fictional website example, you'll learn to set up, configure, develop, test, and deploy a site using established best practices and helpful tips. Each chapter focuses on the implementation of a specific aspect of the site and offers an overview of the technology and step-by-step instructions to putting that particular functionality into practice. By the end of the book, you'll have acquired a solid understanding of the internal workings of the Ektron Framework.

Ektron Developers Guide:

  • Introduces the web project methodology recommended by Ektron

  • Discusses core Web Content Management concepts within the context of the sample site

  • Reviews the main elements of the sample site's homepage, the most visited part of the site

  • Explores the technology used to create a successful customer support portal

  • Highlights ways to implement social network software

2.0 out of 5 stars A Reference, not a Guide June 24 2011
By Dwight Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As one other reviewer has already stated, by itself this book is very inadequate for a working developer to directly train from in order to build significant Ektron sites. The book leverages heavily an Ektron starter site, OnTrek, that is extremely difficult to obtain from the company. Typically only those working for an Ektron partner can obtain it. Thus the typical reader is forced to go without any computer-based tutorials from screen shot picture to screen shot picture with only a minimal explanation of the programming mechanics needed. And you will see no development workflow schematics in this "guide" that explains how a developer actually uses the architecture of this CMS as it sits within a web site. A mediocre presentation with too much expository blather and too little concrete development examples.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start to Finish CMS Book Feb. 24 2011
By Jeff Frey - Published on Amazon.com
This is a good book that is applicable to developers, of course... it's the "Developers Guide"... but it's also good for trainers, power users, marketing/communications employees... all across the organization. It talks about the WHY as well as the WHAT and HOW; so, there are sections like "the importance of social networking" and "connecting to clients." Buy a few, because once people figure that out, they'll have trouble sharing.

Cons? You'll end up tagging a lot of pages because the index is a bit short, and the code samples are only in C# (so, VB folks will have to figure out how some of them map to C# themselves). Maybe someone should re-write all the samples in VB and post them somewhere? (hint, hint)

Overall, it's a good start to finish cms book that takes you seamlessly from overview to specifics with something for everyone in-between. Thanks for writing this guys!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Ektron! April 24 2014
By Katherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have some experience with the Ektron framework, a little beyond the beginner level, and I was brought on as an Ektron developer with my current employer. This book has saved us several hundred dollars in on-site and remote training classes. It is basically like a self-paced training course in Ektron. Invaluable resource for me. I followed all the tutorials and various steps and now I'm developing our company's website with full confidence. Kudos to the authors, very thorough and concise. Thank you!
1.0 out of 5 stars Useless. March 30 2014
By Mark B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Useless. Don't waste your money. Doesn't contain a single bit of helpful information that a developer would need. It's basically just a 642 page advertisement for how great Ektron is.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book, July 22 2013

My Ektron developer really liked the book. She recommends it to all Ektron developers. This was particularly useful to her when we upgraded the version of Ektron we were on
