Expression Engine Book

For those of you new to EE with an interest in trying v2 (and a
dislike for online docs) there’s a new book (still in beta) that you
may want to keep an eye on. <Pragmatic Bookshelf: By Developers, For Developers

. I would wait until the content is finalized and the dust settles
but it might be worth bookmarking for future reference. At the moment
it’s the only print book I know of.

There are other ebook’s and one other print book for EE. I have the “Building an ExpressionEngine Site” from Michael Boyink at Train-ee.com and also a print one, that really isn’t worth it, from Packt Publishing on ExpressionEngine 1.6. I did however pick up some good Joomla books and a recent book on MODx, after you mentioned it. Perhaps when I can afford Paul’s action bundle for Joomla, some screencast’s could roll out. I still have to get the WebYep actions bundle too and expand my CMS usage beyond EE.

I’ve bought all the videos on EE from pragprog and perhaps this book will change my understanding of 2.0. Thanks for the share.

I like the MODx book, it’s well-written, especially for those just
starting out with the software. I still think MODx is a real sleeper
and one of my 3 favorite CMSs.

For those with an interest in screencast; Michael Boyink sells/gives away the here:

@Todd concerning on-line docs, advantage is that they are -most of the time- up to date. I myself have learned a lot also by having a peep now and then in the EE fora http://expressionengine.com/forums

Oh I agree, but staring at a screen is in no way a pleasurable
experience for me, especially when reading techy stuff; it hurts my
eyes. I just enjoy the feel of holding a book.

I could not agree more with you on that point. The look and feel of a printed book is incomparable. I could therefore never imagine myself ‘staring’ at a screen so much as I use to do nowadays… But, alas, also being a bit sloppy, I must admit that ‘copy and paste’ (from online docs :slight_smile: saved my day more than once. BTW it’s interesting to see how e-books and e-book readers shall evolve in the near future.
