6 month ago, I was a Joomla newbie and had no idea about it. I feel that that time was really difficult because I had to learn about something that I've never even heard of before. How to get started and where? Finally, I found it very useful to study with a book, because in a book, all the chapters are put in a logical order from simple to complex. So, Joomla beginners will know the way to work with Joomla as well as apply what they have studied to build a complete website from scratch easier. That's what I want to bring you today; the best Joomla e-books especially for newbies!
