Book about Virtuemart 2This week I got the chance to have a look at a new book about Virtuemart 2, called "Building E-commerce Sites with VirtueMart Cookbook". I was not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised! The book actually explains everything in a way that is easy to understand even for less experienced users. 

I liked the fact that the book is not limited to just a boring overview of Virtuemart with the technical facts, but included explanations about SEO (search engine optimization), analytics (with Piwik) and template frameworks (Gantry and Warp). It even has a chapter about Virtuemart alternatives like HikaShop
