I have Daniel's book here through Packtpub and I can confirm it's a very good book! Well worth the cash.

If you are serious about Odoo, then I past you some informations written by Daniel in another thread. I believe that 20$ investment is a good price for starting your career.

The "Odoo Development Essentials" book might help you.
It advises using an Ubuntu VM in your Windows machine, but describes how 
to set it up so that you can work from your Windows using your IDE of 

The chapter describing this is available for free here:

Alternatively, if you really want to skip the VM setup you can consider 
using the Nitrous cloud development service, at 
It has a free plan, I have been using it and IMO works great.

You might also like to visit the book website 
( where you can find another free chapter 
guiding you through your first Odoo module.

If you like this, I can add that the ebook is, for a limited time, with 
a 50% discount promotion if you use using the code in the book website :)

Hello guys,

I am searching from a while just to setup the environment for developing odoo. I have searched many blogs but the only one I found to be most detailed and easy for the beginners was this link.

Now I have tried to debug Odoo ver. 7 and ver. 8.

I have installed Python 3.4.3.

Eclipse Mars.

Everything that was mentioned in the link was followed accordingly accept Python ver.2.7 and I am having the following error when I debug it. 

pydev debugger: starting (pid: 3060)

Traceback (most recent call last):
