Reviews - What do customers think about TYPO3: Enterprise Content Management?
The worst technical book ever Aug 22, 2008
I use Typo3 for a living and all I can say is this book is terrible. I am a strong book learner, I've learned most everything about any language, software or schema through O'Reilly, Friends of Ed or Sitepoint books. I could not learn Typo3 from this book. I know, you're thinking "But Typo3 is so hard, I need a book and this is the only one, so I should just get it because it's the only choice." I thought that too but it really isn't worth the paper it's printed on. Avoid unless money is no object.
Practical and comprehensive resource Jun 30, 2006
This book is a valid resource for who's approaching for the first time TYPO3, but also for those who would like to have a well organised and full detailed manual.
The book covers all the aspects of TYPO3: introduction to the cms functionalities, setting up the cms, content management and administration, template and extensions development. Very useful is the information about the funcionalities provided through installation of third party extensions.
Chapters dedicated to extension development are very well explained with a lot of examples. This is one of the most important "feature" because, before the edition of this book, documents were widespread on the net. Now the concepts are well outlined and easily learned.
There is just one negative point: the book is not based on the latest TYPO3 version (4.0) so a few new topics are not deeply explained and a few others are not explained at all (versioning and workspaces).
At the end, it's very useful book, it makes one save time and a lot of headhache, ideal for everyone who wants to start a new TYPO3 project and also for those who want a practical guide to this fantastic cms.
Just bad Jun 4, 2006
A complete waste of $60. The only helpful sections were in the extension programming chapter, which equated to about 12-20 pages of material. I ended up putting the book away and turning back to the online documentation. To make matters worse, the screenshots are now out of date, since Typo3 4.0 uses a different backend skiin than 3.8.
My recommendation, stay away, use the documentation at typo3.org instead.
Messy structure, not helpful at all May 19, 2006
I concur with the first two reviewers that the structure of this book leaves much to be desired. It lacks a good overview of the options and dives into extreme details where inappropriate.
An example: I want to replicate the sample site used in the book. The so-called soft links don't work and instead point to a German site. Eventually I found the files in English, but nobody thought about adding a simple read me file how to import the template.
I feel I probably better had stuck with the online documentation...
Great resource for more advanced users Mar 11, 2006
I have used Typo3 for more then 6 months now and it's a love-hate relationship. True, it is a complex system, and it took me quite a while to get up to speed. But once mastered, the sheer number of extensions provide an enormous resource that saves you a lot of time when you develop web-applications. I don't see Typo3 only as a content management system anymore, it is a web-application development platform. And that is where this book kicks in. I agree with other reviewers that the book is not very easy for people who get started with Typo3, but once you reach the stage of developing your own extensions, the book will guide you on that path. For beginning users, I would just recommend the videos on the typo3 website, but anybody who wants to get beyond the basics, this book is a must.
