Packt Publishing has released a new concrete5 book: concrete5 Cookbook byDavid Strack (that's community member rmxdave).
It's a practical collection of solutions to tasks that both novice and experienced concrete5 developers face on a regular basis.Throughout the course of over 140 recipes and 3 bonus project blueprint chapters, PHP developers will learn how to create custom blocks and dashboard interfaces as well as programmatically work with pages, files, users, permissions, and more.
The book is available in print or as an eBook fromPackt Publishing--right now it's even on sale. You can also find it at Amazon.com and other book retailers.
We're taking a week off from producing our weekly live video show about concrete5, but we'll be back again soon!
To catch up with previous episodes of Totally Random, check out our YouTube channel.
We're back with a new episode for Friday, July 26th. This week we announce community karma winners (0:55), a concrete5 logo sighting at OSCON (2:15), new marketplace themes & add-ons (3:55), a recent GitHub pull request (12:15) and answer viewer questions (13:45).
Available now is a 5.6.2 Release Candidate. This includes many bug fixes and a few cool new features like a new Jobs engine. While this is very close to the final release version it is not designed for production use, but is intended for testing deployments and add-ons.
A giant thank you to all that have contributed fixes and bug reports!
Mike and the entire concrete5 Team
