Symfony 5: The Fast Track, a new Symfony book
Symfony 5 will be released in just five weeks. This new version will include hundreds of big and small features and improvements across the entire framework. Symfony 5 will continue the road initiated by the revolutionary Symfony 4 release, with more automation, a smoother learning curve and a better developer experience.
That's why this feels like the perfect time for a new book about Symfony. Fabien Potencier, the leader of the Symfony project, has announced the publication of a new book called Symfony 5: The Fast Track.
This book will describe the creation of an application from scratch to production. The book style will be fresh and pragmatic and it won't explain everything in detail, because that's the purpose of the Symfony Documentation.
Contents will cover everything you can expect in a modern web application: APIs and API Platform, Docker and containerization, Webpack and Encore, Messenger, Mailer, HTTP Client, Workflow, etc.
Contribute to the Book
The book has been introduced as a Kickstarter project, where anybody can contribute to it. We need your help to reach the goal. Please, contribute and help make this book a reality.
If you are an individual, you can pledge from 5 up to 100 euros and you can even include your name in the book. If you are a company, you can pledge to include your logo in the book.
This book will be delivered for free during 2020 and 2021 Symfony/PHP conferences and will also be published for free on symfony.com, so your company sponsorship can reach thousands of high-skilled developers.
Help the Symfony project!
As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.

So, it's not about buying a book for 60 euros ... but contributing 60 euros to this project and receiving a "free" book for doing that.
Nevertheless, if getting a shipping price to be lower is not possible, I'll probably end up donating 20 EUR as I originally planned.
Sorry thats way to much
I just supported this project from MX, however the fees are quite steep for local standards which will result in preventing more backers from both supporting and getting access to the book itself.
Minimum wage is roughly 4.8 euros per DAY.
I paid 60 euros.
And even when we know IT people will usually not make minimum wage, still makes a good case of purchasing power across countries.
When will the book be published on symfony.com?
The kickstarter is close, there is a way to order the book, directly on symfony.com or from another shop?
