Categories: Community
A new Italian book is now available. How to program and implement TYPO3 extensions? This book provides all you need to know to get up and running with Extbase and Fluid, one of the many ways to build extensions.

TYPO3 extensions play a major role in the day-to-day business of developing TYPO3 sites. To become a seasoned TYPO3 developer, one of the basics you need to learn is how to program and implement these extensions. There are many different ways to build TYPO3 extensions, for instance:

  • With the pi-based infrastructure
  • Based on Extbase and Fluid 
  • Write extensions from scratch with pure PHP code
  • Or use any PHP framework you like

Jump start your Extbase and Fluid skills

To acquire the comprehensive skill set of Extbase and Fluid, a good starting point is a book that is now available in ItalianTYPO3 Extbase: Sviluppo Estensioni Moderne per TYPO3 CMS con Extbase & Fluid (Italiano).

You’ll find the English version here: TYPO3 Extbase: Modern Extension Development for TYPO3 CMS with Extbase & Fluid and the German version here: TYPO3 Extbase: Moderne Extensionentwicklung für TYPO3 CMS mit Extbase & Fluid.

The contents of the book provide all you need to know about Extbase and Fluid in an easy-to-follow way and with examples taken from everyday business. Theory is nicely interwoven with detailed practical examples and solutions. It was written to support developers in producing clean code from the start - code that works to modern standards and is backed by contemporary programming principles. 

The authors - Patrick Lobacher, Michael Schams and Gert-jan Dikkescheij - are well-known members of the TYPO3 community. And so is Riccardo De Contardi (member of the TYPO3 Italian Committee and the TYPO3 Core Team), who took the time to inform us about the new publication.

Take your TYPO3 skills to the cutting edge. Strengthen your skills to perform your job successfully and advance in your career. 

The book covers the basics of object-oriented programming in PHP, the principles of Domain Driven Design, the MVC concept (Model-View-Controller), and much, much more. After working through the book, you’ll have the knowledge you need to develop TYPO3 extensions with Extbase and Fluid and to master TYPO3 projects of all sizes and complexities. 

The book should give another boost to the TYPO3 development community, both in Italy and the rest of the world.
