Comments about oreilly Getting Started with OpenCart Module Development:

A practical book that goes straight to the task.

Updated to the latest OpenCart version, "Getting Started with OpenCart Module Development" is clearly oriented to the practitioning developer.

It does not explain a lot about OpenCart's inner design but it presents a number of functioning sample modules. Of course each module is more complex than the previous one. The book starts with an "Hello World" sort of module and ends with a number of decently advanced modules.

If you like "drilling down to the dirty code", this book is for you: the code provided is abundant (and you can download it as well) and there are some terse comments explaining what it does.

The book looks like a good candidate for being purchased by international developers, that is the typical OpenCart's "target base".
