The Symfony 5 Book, The Fast Track, available online and for free

I've been working on making the Symfony 5 book, The Fast Track, available online for free. It has been a bit more challenging that I expected it to be. At first, I wanted to create a dedicated website for the book, but soon realized it was too much work and it was really about copy pasting too much code from So, at the end, I decided to integrate it on and benefit from everything already available.

I still have some open questions like how to let people contribute fixes for translations. As the translated book is not available as source files, but as translations files, it is not as easy as expected. I'm working on integrating that into the translation workflow, but it's not ready yet.

Anyway, I've decided to not wait anymore and share my work with you. So, as of today, the Chinese, Persian, Arabic, Romanian, Portuguese (Brazil), and Dutch versions of the book are available online for everyone to read. Expect more languages to be released soon. You can still buy the PDF if you want to support the Symfony project.

All other versions are available on the main book page as PDF files. As of now, we have 14 available versions: English, French, Arabic, Spanish, German, Persian, Japanese, Russian, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Romanian, and Chinese (China).
