This book is targeted at Mapbender3 developers and will cover useful topics not needed by administrators or users of Mapbender3 installations.

Things you should now

There are a couple of things you should be familiar with in order to contribute to Mapbender3:

  • Object-Orientated PHP: We’re using PHP 5.3 which offers full object orientation. No simple scripts anymore.
  • Symfony2: This is what we build upon. So read The Book and learn about controllers, templating and the other cool things.
  • Docblock annotations: We use ApiGen to generate code documentation. More on this.
  • JavaScript: We use jQuery a lot and especially the jQuery UI widget factory. These are essential to understand to write maintainable JavaScript code.
