Learn OpenERP is a great platform where you can specially learn OpenERP (odoo) and its programming concepts from A to Z. The purpose of creating this blog is to help those people who wants to develop their own OpenERP Systems. Have a look please:

    @Stephen, the link I gave you (the ReadTheDocs format) is the official v8 docs (as it builds from odoo/odoo/tree/8.0 and not odoo-dev/odoo)

    Work has begin on the crowdfunded campaign to write the Website Designer documentation: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bootstrap-themes-for-odoo-cms/x/8816515#home

    not sure whether the indigogo crowdfunding campaign actually belongs here. On first sight this money collected will be spent on developing design themes for the website builder ... where is the connection to documentation/manuals?

    on 10/7/14, 10:21 PM

    One of the deliverables is the documentation which according to Fabien the documentation will be released 5 months after the crowdfunding people get their version. So you can pay 25 euros to get it now or wait and get it later.

    with "deliverables" you mean one of the rewards given away to "funders" is the (already existing) documentation which will be available to the public only later, right?

    on 10/8/14, 1:21 AM

    No, I mean the document that they are currently working on and will be finished in about a month that is included in all of the PERKS except the 15 Euro version and according to the comments in the campaign will most likely be made open source next year. This thread is about documentation (whether it is free or for sale) regarding odoo and therefore I included it for people who wish to know about it. It is not really more complicated than that. Cheers.

    Here is an interesting blog that I am watching. It may someday warrant inclusion in the list above if the owner continues to update it. Best of luck in his endeavors! http://ludwiktrammer.github.io/

    Another community driven project towards Odoo Tutorials has just been launched at http://www.odorials.com. A first beginner tutorial for Odoo 7.0 is already available at http://odorials.com/tutorials/general/how-to-start-using-odoo/.

    Looks good. Do think about the Ubuntu versions as there are a lot of people using Ubuntu.
