Don't see any books on Confluence in Amazon as of June 21, 2011, but perhaps that could change in the future.
There is a related question with some discussion about what resources Atlassian could provide to developers, but I think the main points for development could be summarized as:
I have a book on Confluence! Can I shout that?
I HAVE A BOOK ON CONFLUENCE!!!
I won it at the Atlassian seminar last month. You can get it on Amazon. I highly recomedn it and I am buying copies for my staff. I hope she writes more on the Atlassian products.
Books and reference manuals are not out of date because of you tube and other sites. Rather than having a monoploy on indirect instruction, they are now an important alternative to all the new methods.
I'm not aware of any books about Confluence at all. There are a number that are about Wikis in general which do cover it as part of the subject, but the chapters I've seen are aimed at users, best usage/practice and process, there's nothing for developers specifically.
Could you tell us what parts of the developers documentation is insufficient? You might have simply missed something that does cover what you need.
Documentation about storing / persisting is for me insufficient...
Shown ways to persist information are insufficient described... I need more details how its work, accessing to store info between plugins, more usages examples and other...
Greate question Diego,
me too I would like to have a book about "how to develop for Confluence" or something like that. I have been searching for it but without success. It sounds like a new job for the Confluence Team in Sydney :-). Or maybe for some expert like Gary.
I'm no expert! :) Would be great for someone to write a book, though. I would think that the more active long-term developers at a few of the Atlassian partner companies could provide some great insight. However, one thing for sure is that the book(s) would have to be updated fairly regularly. Atlassian APIs change frequently! This is why Atlassian's wiki is a great primary source for information.
I noticed this a week or so ago. May be one you want to look at...
