    Does this book contains something new in comparison with “Magento fundamentals” video course?

    I suppose you are talking about “Fundamentals of Magento Development” course which is available for registration at Magento U and costs $3,850 per student.

    We had no chance to watch it, but if we just compare the contest of the guide and the course outline, we can say that:
    1. In the guide you can find the information on how to set up development environment and tools. There is no such info in the video.
    2. The “Magento PHP Developer’s Guide” seems to be more practical while video course – educational.
    3. There is no description of automatic tests in the video course.

    Not sure where should I leave comment to join contest. In case it should be here I’m repeating my other comment:
    Great to hear that Magento has also paper publications. I would love to read in this book part about Magento specific ORM and custom data collections.

    I want to win this book because it is more practical than a course to learn how to create automated tests, and to have information on setting up the development environment and make good use of the tools. I want to become a professional.

    I am working from a long time on Magento and i have done Magento Certificaion also but I never read this tutorial I only search on google and start work.

    Now i am on a higher level on Magento work, my juniors always ask me the structure of Magento, code of magento. I always teach them as i have learn. That’s why i need this tutorial so i can help the developers.

    Looks great.
    I’ve got a Magento site that was developed for me and then the developers disappeared and left me with no training or understanding of the mechanics of the site. This book would be a great addition to my Magento arsenal.

    I’d like to know if the book contains anything about troubleshooting Magento installations (due to faulty extension installations, buggy installation procedure for extension, etc).

    So much of the knowledge I’ve amassed about Magento is articles and comments posted around the web, leads to sort of a swiss cheese understanding, forcing you to hunt down info and solutions to what you’re dealing with only as needed. It’s always nice to read something more comprehensive.

    I would love to hear and learn more about Magento API, I think it’s a powerfull thing that nobody uses it full potential.

    Looks like an interesting book and will certainly purchase a copy if I’m not one of the winners. PHP is one are where my skills are lacking when developing magento websites and as I review this post I believe this will be a good foundation to expand my development skills.
