SilverStripe: The Complete Guide to CMS Development


  1. The day I first heard of SilverStripe, was also the day that I discovered that a book for SilverStripe was in the works. After a few days of playing with the CMS I definitely wanted to get the book. By shear luck I got in contact with Wiley Publishing and was able to receive a review copy of the book. So hence I’m giving my first impressions here. Now I should mention that I am not a developer, and only an amateur webdesigner. I do have some basic PHP programming skills, and am familiar with the idea of Object Oriented Programming, which, as I discovered, is invaluable for working with this CMS. At this point I’m about half way through the book, and was impressed with the well structured approach. The concepts of the MVC (Model-View-Controller) structure of SilverStripe are explained clearly, and customizing the CMS is at least at its basic level straight forward. I like that every concept explained in the book is tied into an evolving web project, that gets a little more complex with each turn of the page. Again, I’m only half way through the book, and for a seasoned developer some of what is written might be trivial, but for those with limited programming skills this book will put you on the right track.

    As a side note, the book does not simply rehash the documentation and tutorials on the official […] website. It is stand alone and compliments in depth what’s already out there. Thanks to the SilverStripe team for this book and for a great CMS.

  2. This books takes you from 0 – 60 in… well very quickly anyway. For an introductory book, it does a very good job at taking you through everything that you need to know and getting you right into coding and designing a useful application. I very much recommend this book!
