Umbraco Secrets Revealed

About the Book

You Are A Legend! If you are thinking of buying this book then first, thank you it means a lot to me! I Need Your Help!

Writing a book is tough. With Umbraco Secrets exposed I want to provide a guide that will tell you everything that you need to know about building, launching, and maintaining a website built using Umbraco 8.

This book is still a work in progress. If you have followed my website, used any of my code, and would like to read a book on Umbraco 8 then please consider supporting me by buying this book and keeping me motivated to write it. So far a lot of legends have brought an alpha-copy so thanks to them.

I will explain what you will learn below, but first, let me explain why I would really appreciate you supporting me in writing this book.

  1. The minimum price to purchase this is $4.99 a price of a coffee. When the book is finished the price will go up so buying now not only helps keep me motivated but you get a bargain.
  2. The knowledge in this book has taken me 18 years to learn. Why spend years waiting to learn something when you can take a shortcut
  3. If you buy a copy you can tell me what you want to be included and I will add information based on readers feedback
  4. The book will be updated weekly - if you buy a copy tick the get updates checkbox, you will get an email when the book is updated and what is included
  5. Even though the book is in Alpha, you will get instant access to 60 pages of the book. Which covers lots of tips and tricks. The book will help you in its current format on your project.

This book is at the very early stages and I would estimate be finished in June 2021.
