With a detailed introduction to setting up and configure a LAMP server, the book will guide you through the must-know subjects about developing in Magento.

I found out very useful section called “Packing our extension”, where you can learn how to make a package of your extension or theme to then upload it into your MagentoConnect account, so it will be available for customers to install it by copy and pasting a single line to the MagentoConnect Manager panel within Magento backend.
