Product Description

Product Description

This book isn't written as a standard tutorial, it has been broken down into two halves to give you full understanding of the Community Starter Kit and then the confidence to create, administer and customize your own site. The second half of the book includes plenty of code, but the emphasis is firmly on guiding you through the techniques to create, extend and customize your own module. This book has been written for ASP.NET developers with a sound grasp of C# and access to Visual Studio .NET. This book uses the Visual Studio. NET version of the ASP.NET Community Starter Kit.

About the Author

Ben Pirt studied architecture at Edinburgh University. In 1999 he moved to New York where he developed animation skills through working for a design and visualisation company. Here he was also able to strengthen his web development skills through the use of PHP, SQL, CSS and XHTML. On his return to Edinburgh in 2001 he co-taught a course on architecture and multimedia before completing his postgraduate diploma at the Bartlett School of Architecture. Bjorn Dieding attended the Ev. Gymnasium Werther, where he took advantage of a student exchange to the U.S. in 1997, and at this time, first came into contact with web design. From then on he invested much of his free time gathering knowledge and learning about Internet-related topics. In 1999 he started realizing his first commercial projects. In 2000 Bjorn attended the b.i.b. Hannover, graduating in 2003 as a computer scientist in e-commerce (Staatl. gepr. Informatiker Electronic Commerce). After graduation, he became a freelance web application programmer and web designer. In March 2004, Bjorn became the first core developer of eZ publish outside eZ systems. Bjorn Dieding met Soren Meyer while studying, and at the end of 2002 they decided to team up as xrow GbR. Their main objective was to deliver value-added services for professional and high-quality open source software. Today, xrow GbR is one of the top German consultancies for delivering eZ publish services. Martin Bauer is the Managing Director of designIT, an Australian based content management specialist practice. Martin has ten years experience in web development and web based content management. He is the world's first certified Feature Driven Development Project Manager. Prior to his role as Managing Director, Martin held a variety of roles across a range of industries. This experience includes careers in law, advertising and IT. Martin's breadth of expertise has culminated in a focus upon the delivery of effective content management solutions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book: very technical Aug. 31 2004
By Firebright - Published on
With this book, our intrepid micro-publisher has sought to lay out an understanding of the complex content management system eZ Publish ([...] eZ Publish is a very powerful php based CMS solution, and really does meet the requirements of an Enterprise CMS solution.

However, it has not been a very well documented project despite great efforts by the developers, especially for the more complex functionality.

This book addresses many of the things that are left wanted by the documentation, such as the modification of core classes. However, it oddly combines them with basic information like how to set up the system -- information which was almost out of date before the book was released.

Sadly, the book fails to go deep enough to satiate the demand of our more technical users while also failing to provide enough introductory material for beginners. This lack of clear audience focus plagues the book and lessens it's utility for real world developer or beginners.

This book is absolutely worth the money, if you've got a little php under your belt and you're looking to really buckle down and start developing eZ Publish sites. But if you're a beginner, or you don't have a solid understanding of php, you'll probably find this book to be over your head past the first chapter.

This publisher is coming out with a revised version which I am sure will address many of these issues, as they are one of the best computer book publishers to hit the scene since WROX. The fourthcoming Plone book by the same publisher looks like a good title, and the OpenCMS book by Packt Publishers is very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good Feb. 10 2009
By Jens C. Brynildsen - Published on
This book was a real disappointment. Poorly written with bad examples. It actually convinced me NOT to use EZ as my CMS. I went with the ExpressionEngine CMS (EE) instead and I'm very happy I did. Much easier to learn and there's good books for it as well.
