About the Book
Hey there! Build it with Drupal 8 is an Open Source book that walks aspiring as well as experienced site builders through building fairly common websites. Most people install Drupal and usually end up saying, ok now what? With this book you can flip to the chapter that matches the type of site you're trying to build and follow along. With a little bit of practice and some luck, you'll have a pretty functional page in no time.
The book as it stands is fairly thin, but we're putting it up in hopes of setting the tone and bringing new contributors on board. Hopefully we can get as far as teaching people how to set up an ecommerce store, and maybe even advanced content driven websites. The sky is the limit!
The github repo is at https://github.com/antoniojtorres/build-it-with-drupal-8, all contributions of all sizes are welcome!
It's totally free to download, although any donation is welcome as a thank you to the leanpub folk for providing this service. 100% of the royalties is donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, totally optional.
All feedback is welcome, including requests for new chapters.
This book is put together and released for free by your friends at BSideStudios.com
