The author says:
Given the massive code and structure changes, Magento version 2. x can be described as a platform that is significantly different from its predecessor. Keeping this in mind, this book will neither assume nor require previous knowledge of Magento 1. x.
Given how many technologies are involved with developing with Magento — I don't think this is fair or at least it's a little misleading. This book assumes you at least have knowledge and skills of advanced topics and technologies used by Magento. A lot of abstract programming going on here and every step is not provided.
Magento 2 has changed since its release. The app/code directory was removed. No mention of that in this book or its errata. Google searches don't provide a clear enough solution so as to continue with the tutorial.
None of the topics are covered in depth, which allows this book to provide a firm overview of Magento and yet gives you enough detail that you feel confident exploring topics on your own. The chapter on themes, for example, does not provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to make complex frontends (indeed, such a topic would be its own book). Instead it shows you exactly how themes are structured, which for an experienced developer allows you to understand the overall structure. For me, this was far more useful than a step-by-step tutorial.
This is not a guide on how to setup and manage Magento as an eCommerce platform. If you're looking for an introduction to using Magento, then this book is not for you. However if you're fluent in PHP and have a requirement to learn the Magento 2 platform, then this book is exactly what you're looking for.
