Definitive Guide to SugarCRMThe Definitive Guide to SugarCRM: Better Business Applications is now available in paperback form. This book does an in-depth look at the SugarCRM platform, from the MVC and Metadata frameworks to Web Services, and many bits in between. It then walks the user through customizing SugarCRM out-of-the-box using Studio, Logic Hooks, Workflows, and custom PHP code. It then follows up by showing how to build new functionality on top of Sugar using Module Builder and custom PHP code, and then finishes by showing how to build a complete solution on the platform.

It is a unique book in that it is the first and only official SugarCRM book on the market. Written by myself, John Mertic, it comes with all of the engineering expertise of Sugar, giving developers, IT administrators, systems integrators, and consultants a unique insight into the platform and how to use it to build complete business applications and solutions. It’s a definite must read for anyone here that follows this blog.

You can buy the book from Amazon now, or look for it at your local book retailer.

    What version of SugarCRM is this book about? The new 5.5 or the older 5.2.


    Thanks and looking forward to the response of this book. I continually like reading your blog and wants more to be written about this book at your blog. We at OSSCube feels proud to be SugarCRM GOLD partners and every achievement in the field of SugarCRM is achievement for us.


    Just been looking into crm’s and after finding and installing sugar it looks perfect, with a good community and what appear to be great tools built into the system to make the system bespoke its just what we need.

    Like Oliver i wanted to know what version of sugar this book is referencing 5.2 or 5.5?

    I would like to start working on 5.5 and it would be ideal if the book matched this… or in your experience do you feel the upgrade is so similar that it wont matter?



    Targeted toward 5.5, but many of the items also apply to 5.2. I tried to point out which items are new in 5.5.
