Book review: Managing and Customizing OpenCMS 6 Websites

Filed under
Reviews

If you want to create a free software content management server fast and starting with zero knowledge, and then vigorously and systematically play with a Java based web application, then the book Managing and Customizing OpenCMS 6 by Matt Butcher is the accurate, project orientated and a pragmatic book that you are looking for.

The author has written this book in a systematic and rigorous project orientated manner. What I mean to say by this is that, if I knew nothing of the product and wished to implement it quickly, I would be asking the questions answered in the book. Personally, as I worked my way through my own little project, I found that the book’s 240 pages were exactly the right number of pages required to achieve my objectives, not one page too much or too few.

Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
