Dive into more Joomla! knowledge
The releases for Joomla Press were announced October 1, 2010 during Joomla Day West in San Jose, California.
The first two titles slated for publishing are The Official Joomla! Book which is scheduled to be published in December 2010 and the second title Joomla! Explained: Your Step-by-Step Guide with a publishing date of early 2011.
The books will be the flagship releases in a new Joomla Press, representing a publishing alliance between Pearson, the global leader in education services and technology, and Open Source Matters, Inc. (OSM), the not-for-profit organization that supports the Joomla project.
A portion of the proceeds will go back to the Joomla! Project.
