The book covers the install, configuration and customization of this flavor of Drupal very well. The Open Atrium intranet tool is well suited to collaborative work within an organization or business, and the book covers those details very well. There is a tight walk through of configuring new work groups in chapter six that is even better than many of the online documentation for the vanilla Organic Groups module for Drupal, which is exactly what Open Atrium uses. The instruction is thoughtful and concise, people looking for an Open Atrium resource will likely find this book useful.
There could have been a better job of helping a reader from an organization visualize the power of the Open Atrium environment. The examples in the various chapters did not inspire me to solve my organization's problems with their tool, but despite these weak examples I can vouch for the power of the tools myself based on my personal experience as a developer. If you are reading this and trying to decide if Open Atrium would be a good tool for your office then take my word that it will be excellent even if this book doesn't help you envision it up front.
I do not recommend that new Drupal users pick up this book as a means of learning Drupal itself. The title and tagline of the book do not make it clear that Open Atrium is a custom installation of Drupal, I am concerned that new users would pick up this book because of the price and availability and get their new learning all mixed up. I also found a few errors, typos, etc, that one can generally attribute to the nature of a book about open source technology - the books are written quickly to keep up with the development cycles of their subjects and as a result may fall out of date very quickly or overlook some of the fine details. Packt Publishing produces a lot of books on the topic of Drupal and generally their authors do a pretty good job.
Additionally staying with the Packt Pub style the books covers how to get started with the base technologies needed such as a web server, database server, working php installation and requisite steps to installing OA. Chapter 2 serves not only as an introduction to getting Open Atrium up and running but a solid basis for starting any Drupal based website. The topics covered are essential to using Drupal based or PHP based website applications in general. The key to this chapter is the author drawing on his experience to provide recommended configurations for the requisite software needed. For instance setting the default ports for Apache and MySQL or making sure PHP has enough memory to run properly. While trivial to seasoned developers these can quickly become roadblocks to a beginners success. Simply put the goals outlined in chapter 2 help beginners not only get started but start with the knowledge and foundation that only seasoned developers have garnered from experience.
Seasoned Drupal developers wanting a quick start or reference to Open Atrium will find the books layout equally appealing. Chapters are organized to cover specific topics of each component of OA in depth. This allows for the book to not only serve as a step by step guide but solid reference for anyone setting up OA. Anyone looking to use OA in their development or organizational work flow I would highly recommend having this book on hand. Since OA is also built on a series of modules and features it can be confusing for even seasoned developers to find the correct place to customize OA. Each chapter covers in depth the out of the box functions that allow you to customize OA from both an administrators and users perspective. For instance customizing the dashboard on a per group basis, or adjusting global site settings such as the name and email address. As with anything Drupal you want to find the correct place to make changes to the system that survive future updates while not hacking core code. Chapter 10 covers some of the ways to extend the functionality of OA without worrying about future compatibly. Users looking for a more in depth guide on how to customize OA features can refer to chapter 11. While not the definitive guide on adding, creating or customizing Drupal features it provides a solid resource for users looking to expand beyond out of the box functionality.
When starting to work with new software it always helps to start with a solid overview and drill down to the specifics. Drupal Intranets with Open Atrium does exactly this by starting the reader with a high level overview of Open Atrium and Drupal in the first chapter. Continuing on the book walks beginning users through setting up OA for the first time and for those who need it setting up a hosting environment. The book then drills down closer on a topic by topic basis covering the out of the box functionality of OA. Along with each topic covered the author provides knowledgeable insight, from his years of experience, on how to properly setup OA for a successful launch. Each chapter while structured in a cookbook fashion can still serve as a valuable reference to OA functionality. For seasoned Drupal developers and users this is useful for setting up an OA website quickly but correctly. Users looking to move beyond the out of box functionality will find the references throughout the book and in the appendix valuable. For anyone looking to get started with Open Atrium I highly recommend having this book on hand.
