What's Needed in an eZ 5 Tutorial?

Friday 15 February 2013 3:39:05 pm - 6 replies

Hi all, 

I'm currently working on a series of tutorial articles for working with eZ Publish 5, focused mostly at developers already familiar with eZ 4.x. I'm building out a simple site using only Twig/Symfony concepts wherever possible, and walking users through the steps. 

So, if you're just learning eZ Publish 5, which parts are confusing you the most, and what do you have questions on? If you're familiar with it, what are the questions you get the most?

Hello Joe,

As far as I'm concerned, I'm currently learning eZ 5 and I had no particular problems with all the basics (most of the concepts are already in Confluence, that's cool). What's more difficult is when you want to go further like how to create a Slot class that catch a Signal (I did not succeed with this) ? Or maybe the strategy to develop a site with eZ 5 and mix with eZ 4 features (as for now eZ5 misses a few features form eZ 4).

Personally I'd like to see the old "Building an eZ Publish Site" tutorial updated to show how one would achieve the same result using eZ 5. That tutorial was the 'way in' for a lot of people starting out with eZ Publish.

I like Paul's idea. Actually i'm trying to upgrade an existing site to ez5 and that's the question i have more times. "I could do that with ez4 but how should i proceed with ez5?". 

That could be a really good starting point. 

Furthermore, in terms on probably help eZ crew adding new features to the API, a tutorial focused on what we will find on API/Core/SPI folders and where should we add code to meet our needs will be great imho. 


And btw, i think it may help if the tutorials contains links to related symfony documentation. I'm not saying we should do symfony tutorials but things as "for more info about twig control structures see..." or things like that.
