The Symfony 5 Book: An Update

The Fast Track Cover

As announced in October, I wrote a book about Symfony 5 at the end of last year. If you were not aware, the book is titled "Symfony5: The Fast Track". You can find more details about the content of the book and in some updates I have posted during the Kickstarter campaign.

Now that the first batch of paper books (more than 650) have been sent to the Kickstarter backers, we have been hard at work to prepare the next steps.

If you missed the Kickstarter campaign, don't worry. You will soon be able to buy the paper book online. If you want to receive a notification by email when it becomes available, fill-in the pre-order form.

One of the goals with the new book was to have some stable content that we could translate into many languages. This is happening as we speak.

The Fast Track Translations

As of today, more than 180 translators are working on translating the book in 24 languages. If you want to join the effort, send me an email and tell me which language team you want to join (it can be an existing language or a new one).

The first translation teams are almost ready. It means that the book will be soon available in French, Polish, German, and Italian. Again, fill-in the pre-order form if you want to be notified when your favorite language is available.

I am also working on open-sourcing the book. There is still a lot of work to do as we don't have translations enabled anymore on symfony.com. The idea is to have a dedicated section/website for the book. The first chapters should be available (in English and in some other languages) sometimes in February if everything goes according to the plan.
