Looking for Alfresco book recommendations

Hi,

I'm looking for any books which can help a developer understand Alfresco and how to customise it. I found that the online material can be a bit fragmented, and sometimes difficult to follow. There's certainly a lot of information, which is very much appreciated, but I think the platform has evolved, and the material is a little disjointed. Needs something to tie it together, which is why I looked for a book on the subject.

The most up to date book I came across so far is this one by Jeff Potts -

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Alfresco-One-5-x-Developers-Guide/dp/1787128164/ref=dp_ob_title_bk 

Are there any other books or training resources which could be useful to a developer starting out with Alfresco?

I checked on Pluralsight, but unfortunately there's nothing on there for Alfresco. Maybe someone from Alfresco could look into providing a video tutorial course there?

Thanks

Andy

Probably the better resources (even better than that book including the name of Jeff in the cover) are available at

There are working samples and a detailed explanation on how to start developing with Alfresco.

Thanks for your response. I have to admit that for me, following the online documentation is quite difficult, and I often find myself going around in circles. That's why I was looking for something to tie it all together, and hopefully the book can do that.

It's quite disappointing to see the lack of technical books on Alfresco. There's also nothing on Pluralsight, in terms of video tutorials, and the odd Youtube video I did come across was out of date.

This is why I made this series for Spanish people:

Anyway it's only available in Spanish.

Nice work Angel. Unfortunately my Spanish is very poor. Smiley Sad
