Philipp Krenn lives in Vienna, Austria and studies software engineering. Besides being a student, he also works as a freelance IT trainer and web developer (mostly using SilverStripe, but also some Drupal, CakePHP, and Smarty).
Philipp started using SilverStripe in 2007 while he was one of the students at the Google Summer of Code improving the project. While kicking off the effort to support multiple databases (besides MySQL), he got a good insight into the inner workings of the project. Building on top of that, he became an expert in developing web applications with SilverStripe.
"Principles and Concepts" gives a good overview of the SilverStripe system itself 2.
I'm extremely grateful for the chance to read this book and I will be using it as resource and reference in the future.
I like how Krenn didn't delve in to the fallacy, many code authors do, of providing too much code in the book.
I don't know a better way of learning SilverStripe 2.4 (and preparing for the release of SS 3.0, which is expected by the end of 2011) than to get this book and work through it. Read morePublished on July 12, 2011 by Shawn McBurnie
This book took me a couple chapters to get into. If you've already done a SilverStripe site you can skip to chapter 3, and just skim it as a refresher. Read morePublished on June 19, 2011 by D. Rye
