On the Ibuildings techPortal today there's a new review of a book focused on the SilverStripe content management system. In this review Hilary Boyce takes a comprehensive look at the book and its contents, getting into a bit of the specifics here and there.
The book has been produced through the collaboration between a developer of the product, Ingo Schommer who works for SilverStripe Ltd, and an experienced user, Steven Broshart who works for German online marketing agency Cyberpromote GmbH. It is a combination that works well. The book is convincingly authoritative but also down to earth; it is a practical guide from people who know what they are talking about and can explain it clearly citing realistic examples.
The book, first published in German and translated, covers everything you'll need to get started with this powerful CMS/framework. She talks about some of the content that stood out to her - the three chapters dealing with making an actual application based on SilverStripe. You can see more about the contents in this list on Wiley's site.
