Format: Kindle Edition
I am pleasantly surprised. Having spent hundreds of hours researching the web, browsing blogs and articles to find solutions or tutorials, reading this book helped tremendously. It does not explain how to setup a Magento system or how to setup a template or new skin, as this is well covered by other guides already and would be expected knowledge as a prerequisite to step into the development realm (the same as php development experience would be). But if you are new to the Magento ecommerce universe, or find yourself limited in reaching the next level in true extension development due to the complexity of Magento’s architecture and lack of guidance, this is the go-to literature I do recommend reading first.

The beginning chapters give a well-structured introduction into the concepts of the Zend and Magento framework, data management and the anatomy of extensions, which is essential when it comes to understand the way the truly complex ecommerce framework works. The book guides by example through setting up a front-end module and subsequently extending it by adding backend functionality.

With this approach the book gives a well foundation for any future development of modules or extensions. For some it will not go deep enough, but it leaves little question for the newcomer about how to approach extension development.

You will also find in the book some useful guide into the API of Magento and its use cases (e.g. managing the catalog through 3rd party systems), showing examples equally for SOAP, XML-RPC and REST. Aspects of Quality Assurance, versioning and distribution of the created components conclude the book.

I found the individual chapters well organized by following a didactical approach, explaining the context first and then delve into the details.

Best Magento Developer Book By Far 24. April 2013
Von Kevin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Magento community was sorely lacking a good developer book. I am SO HAPPY that a Magento professional has decided to finally write one that actually goes over all the things a new Magento developer would need to know. Before this book came out you had to scrap together various online tutorials and guides to understand Magento. Now there is a quick to read book with great samples of all the Magento basics. Thanks to much for making this book.

Even after paying for the Magento $350 quickstart I felt I was missing a lot of information. This book has the perfect starting guide and will save so many people so much time trying to learn Magento. Thanks for writing it!

You'll see on my blog post: [...] at the end I was very close to paying a few thousand dollars to have a programmer write a decent Magento book, but now that is not necessary :).

A few of the things I loved about this book:

Goes step by step through making a real Magento module, not just some hello world or blog

Teaches about Magento testing techniques

How to properly deploy Magento and Magento modules

Covers the admin grid system - how to set them up for new modules or edit them

Magento layout xml files - how they work

First few chapters go over all the Magento codebase in a thorough manner - get up to speed on what you need to know very quickly. Much faster than going through the 40 hour fundamentals of magento screencast.

Covers how to setup Vagrant - though I already had done this it's great to have a resource there for people learning it and how it will help your development

Great starting point for Magento development 26. Mai 2013
Von Mattias - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This guide is a great starting point for developers with previous programming experience that want to get into Magento Development. There is a lot of information out there about Magento but this guide sets a good foundation at where to expand your knowledge.
Myself I have been working with Magento for about a year but wanted to get a deeper technical knowledge.

I would say that for developers starting out with Magento the best option is probably to read this book first (assuming you have PHP knowledge already) and then once you get the concepts you can move on and get more in depth regarding to what you want to accomplish.

I especially enjoyed the API chapter myself.

At my company we will use this book as the second book for new hires after they have read the Magento Design Guide.

Thankyou mr MacGregor,

Excellent book with meaningful exercises 23. Juni 2013
Von Felix - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Somehow Magento, unlike most other open-source projects was able to build a cadre of high-quality authors who write high-quality books. This is certainly such book! It gives both a big picture of how various Magento pieces fit together, but does it on a detailed enough level that an experienced PHP developer without prior Magento experience can jump right in. And the fact that the book covers the latest Magento version is a pleasant surprise in itself!

If you are in such a category, your first project probably won't be an extension for the marketplace. So, an example of a gift registry fits very well in such paradigm. By leaving out more complex aspects that are relevant when you are developing "for publication", the author was able to keep the size of the book down to manageable 200 pages.

So why 4 stars and not 5? There are just way too many typos! Some are funny ("compromised" instead of "comprised"); some make a good unintended exercise for the reader (the author describes the importance of calling getLoadedRegistry() in "Edit registry", but without setting it anywhere else the example fails); yet others leave with annoying feeling of sloppiness (both '_' and '__' actually work in Magento, and with the reader unlikely to code translations as part of the exercise, it is not clear which one to call - so author's careless mixing of single and double underscores in examples makes for unpredictable results).

Finally, there are numerous links to author's website where the reader is promised deeper discussion, additional exercise, etc. Unfortunately, the materials there are "coming soon"

Good attempt, needs some critical revisions in early sections (and some notes for other readers), 29. Oktober 2013
Von M. Bennett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I like the author's style and frequent attention to detail, and I admire anybody producing a book of this quality.

However, since he's doing a detailed recipe with VirtualBox and Ubuntu, there's some critical steps missing. Granted if you're both a VirtualBox whiz and Ubuntu admin, you're likely to notice and fix these as you go, but otherwise you're doomed.

In the following paragraphs I don't mean to trash the author, I'm simply enumerating a lot of actionable things that could be addressed in the next version, and also some notes for people using this version of the book. They all sound like small omissions, but they add up to an annoying overall experience.

The first hint of trouble is when the book casually mentions to bring up a web browser. Since the author had you download a server image which doesn't come with X, you can't use a web browser on the guest Linux box. And with the atypical network config and no info about finding IP addresses nor ports, you can't easily get to from your host OS either. An admin would think "no problem, I'll just do sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop". But that fails too!, unless you made a reasonably large disk. Remember, the author knows you don't have X-Windows because he has you download an image that doesn't have it. And doesn't mention installing it, and doesn't give a critical warning during creating the virtual machine that the disk size must be larger so that you can install X11.

For the Network Adapter 2, I think you also need "Advanced: Promiscuous Mode, Allow All" if you're going to use your host's web browser (vs XWindows Firefox), and I think you can disable Adapter 1. The author needs to explain these options a bit more, maybe just another sentence or two.

The VirtualBox network settings need to be explained further, e.g.: why a second card is needed, why it's bridged vs. NAT, whether or not the first NIC should be left enabled or not, and if you're on a MacBook then there's the additional oddity of the Mac's wifi looking like the primary Ethernet. All of these items have answers and would be trivial for somebody know already knows all this stuff.

You'll also get warnings if you don't bump up the video memory.

And there's no mention of installing the VirtualBox Guest Additions, which doesn't work without other apt-get commands being issued first, and figuring out how to mount the CD, and the cryptic errors that can bring, and having X11 already installed (despite the promising sounding --nox11 switch which seems to still need X) And the annoying but useless menu options in VirtualBox that don't do anything unless you've installed these extras. For a VirtualBox guru, you already know all this stuff, but once again for anybody else trying to "follow the recipe" is lost.

As an author myself, I know you can never include everything you'd like. And this guy wants to get to talking about the Magento eCommerce platform, but including all these missing points I suggest might make it seem like he'd be writing a VirtualBox and Ubuntu tutorial as well. I empathize with all of that, but book is a recipe style manual, so it needs these things or at least a checklist and links. Since he's going for the recipe style, which is very nice and sorely needed, I think it'd be good to just continue fleshing out all of this other stuff in upcoming revisions. Books that go the other way, that ONLY talk about their central theme and assume you posses all other skills, are not as valuable.

Update, needs to tie together critical MySQL and Magento install info:

In the MySQL admin commands he has the rather cryptic:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON magento_dev.* TO 'mage'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'dev2013$#';

Neither 'mage' or 'dev2013$#' are spelled out as another username and password you're going to need later on. And I believe the punctuation is just to make a strong password, but since both dollar sign ($) and hash mark (#) have special meaning in Unix, it'd be comforting to spell out that we're not doing anything tricky here, just including symbols to make a strong password. Also the command reports that 0 rows are affected; it should be spelled out whether or not this is to be expected, since previous MySQL commands give non-zero counts.

Worse, LATER ON when you get to the Web based Magento install Wizard, he says to just follow the on-screen instructions. BUT there's critical non-defaults that are tied to those previous MySQL admin commands. For example, the wizard suggests a Database Name of magento, but this is incorrect, in previous MySQL commands we created magento_dev instead. And those cryptic 'mage' and 'dev2013$#' strings need to be entered into the User Name and User Password fields. Also, yes, you can leave the encryption key blank, but if you do, then on the next screen BELOW the survey it shows you the auto-generated key and suggests that you save it. Further, copy and pasting this long key to your notes can be a challenge. If you're running Firefox on with the client machine, but making notes on the your host machine, then you'd need want to copy and paste. This requires that you: (1) Know to use right click, (2) have enabled shared clipboard in the settings (not the default), and (3) got the Host Additions installed correctly (otherwise that setting and copy command are ignored).

These are all minutia, but if they're not all addressed you won't get that auto-generated key saved, and who knows how important that will be later.

Also, a tiny quibble, in several places he shows you how to get into MySQL, but never mentions to use the quit command to get out. If you're new to MySQL you might miss that.

Update: GitHub info out of date, confusing.

He mentions a github project called "magento-vagrant", but doesn't give the URL or clone instructions. When you search GitHub for it you find many matches from many authors, so hard to tell which one is his? The Kindle app lists the authors name as Allan MacGregor, so given that I thought it should be one of the ones under [...] BUT none of those are called "magento-vagrant". There's several MageXyz repos, but not sure Mage = Magento, and he does have other repos with the word full word Magento (vs Mage), so not safe to assume they're the same. If you browse all his repos you'll find things like "MageVagrant" (vs. "magento-vagrant"), "magneto-varnish", "magento-shell-tools", etc. None are an exact match, vs. the repos on GitHub from other users that do match. Or maybe the author has more than one GitHub persona?

Since this is an eBook authored in 2013 (and I'm reading it in 2013), seems like a pretty big disconnect. Rechecking the intro in the book, I don't see any reference to github URLs, just the boilerplate Pact Publishing stuff.
